As a result, graduates are prepared to deal effectively with varied economic and business issues. They are also prepared to view society through the prism of several areas of study, including literature, philosophy, history, mathematics and the sciences.

In short, the department prepares its graduates to be literate, competent and sensitive individuals who are capable of making significant contributions to society as a whole, as well as to a specific employer. With respect to employment, graduates should be able to move rapidly upward in their careers as a result of their rigorous and broadly based education at Randolph-Macon.

The department offers majors in Accounting, Economics, and Business as well as minors in Accounting and Economics.
