About the International Economics Bachelor’s Program
The 120-hour Bachelor of Science in International Economics (B.S.I.E.) provides understanding of global economic and commercial relationships through concentrations of coursework in international economics, international politics, and international business. This understanding is important for a variety of careers with either direct or indirect international aspects.
Communication Literacy Requirement. Students attending Texas Tech University for the first time in the Fall 2017 term or later will complete a Communication Literacy requirement in their program(s) of study.
Texas Tech University’s transition from the Writing Intensive requirement to the Communication Literacy requirement signals the university’s awareness that in addition to the fundamental role that writing plays in enabling students to explore, develop, focus, and organize a message, other types of communication must also be taught as appropriate for a student’s discipline. Throughout each program of study, then, students must be given ample opportunity to develop their skills in forms of communication central to that program. Communication literacy for the B.S.I.E. is evidenced by demonstrating proficiency in “thinking like an economist” through reading, writing, theoretical and graphical analysis, and orally communicating core principles of economic theory and an understanding of international economic theory and issues. The three required courses in the Communication Literacy plan are ECO 3312 , ECO 3333 , and ECO 4332 .
