The Business Management Department at LBCC offers two programs leading to degrees in Economics. Each program is designed to be completed in two years and it is important that students check with the economics transfer curriculum advisor before enrolling in these classes.

The program leading to an Associate of Science degree in Economics is designed for students planning to transfer to Oregon State University to complete a baccalaureate degree in Economics. Students interested in this degree are strongly encouraged to enroll in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP) as there may be lower division courses required by their chosen discipline that are only offered at Oregon State University.

The program leading to an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree with an emphasis in Economics prepares students for transfer into any of the major programs of Economics offered by any public four-year university in Oregon.
