Prospective majors should consult with the department chair early in their academic career. To major in Economics, students must maintain a grade-point average of C or higher. The department recommends that students complete ECON 101 and ECON 102 or ECON 103 (in either order) and MATH 101 first. Students considering graduate study also should complete extensive coursework in mathematics.
The economics major consists of at least 11 semester credits.
