Program Requirements

Minimum residence requirement is 21 hours in the major.
requirement 1 Complete 1 option
option 1.1 Complete 1 course
Note: A grade of C- or better is required.
Note 1: Deferred students are encouraged to take a refresher math course such as EngT 295R before or concurrent with Econ 378, 380, or 381.
Note 2: For students contemplating graduate work in economics, the 500-level economics courses plus Math 113, 313, and 314 are strongly recommended.
Note 3: Students may take the Math 112 challenge exam to satisfy the Math 112 requirement. Please visit the Mathematics Department for more information.
requirement 2 Complete 6 courses
Complete the following with a grade of C- or better:
requirement 3 Complete 1 option
option 3.1 Complete 15.0 hours from the following course(s)
Complete 15 credit hours from the following courses:
option 3.2 Complete 2 groups
group 3.2.1 Complete 3.0 hours from the following course(s)
Complete 3 credit hours from the following courses:
group 3.2.2 Complete 12.0 hours from the following course(s)
Complete 12 credit hours from the following courses:
Note 1: The 200-level field courses are intended as interim courses as a student moves from Econ 110 into the 300-level core courses. Having completed Econ 380, students are strongly encouraged to take the 400-level rather than the 200-level field courses.
Note 2: Students should not take both a 200-level and a 400-level course with the same last two digits (e.g., Econ 275 and 475), although they are encouraged to take the 300- and 500-level theory classes (e.g., Econ 380 and 580).
Program Outcomes: 

Preparation for Graduate Studies

Program graduates will be prepared and qualified to pursue graduate studies in economics, business, finance, law, public policy and related disciplines.

Career Preparation

Program graduates will be prepared and qualified to pursue careers in economics, business, finance, law, public policy and related disciplines.

Economic Problem Solving

Program graduates will be able to conceptualize a wide range of constrained optimization problems in economics and related fields and will be able to apply formal mathematical analysis to evaluate these problems.

Econometric Analysis

Program graduates will be able to conduct basic econometric analysis including using data to estimate behavioral models, test hypotheses and measure quantitative relationships; they will have a basic understanding of mathematical statistics that underlies applied econometric analysis.
