Economics


The transfer program in economics prepares students for a successful transfer to The University of Montana - Missoula, Montana State University - Bozeman, or other four-year institutions. Montana State University - Bozeman offers students two options, general economics and economic science, which could lead them to the Bachelor of Science degree in economics.

Students earning a bachelor degree in economics are prepared for various graduate programs including law school. Economists often seek employment opportunities as consultants, helping private businesses, non-profit organizations, and branches of government.

Associate of Science Degree


Suggested course of study for a transfer to Montana State University - Bozeman:


First Year


First Year Total: 31

Second Year


Second Year Total: 30

1 Students will still need to take ECNS 204 at Montana State University - Bozeman but this will prepare the student for that course.

The Associate of Science (AS) degree requires 60 credits at FVCC, and the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree at Montana University System (MUS) colleges and universities requires 120 credits. FVCC students may earn as many as 75-85 credits in preparation for some transfer majors, thus reducing the number of credits required for the BS degree at MUS schools. Also, by earning the AS degree from FVCC, students will have satisfied the lower division General Education Core (see General Education Requirements for requirements) for all MUS institutions and will not be required to meet additional lower division general education core requirements upon transfer. The suggested course load in AS programs is rigorous and is recommended for only the most prepared students. A more moderate semester credit load can be achieved by taking general education core courses during summer terms or completing one or two additional semesters at FVCC before transfer.

The information on all transfer programs is subject to change. Students should see their advisor to explore other possibilities not specifically listed in the program.
