Course Requirements

MAT 150 and MAT 151 may be substituted for MAT 135 & MAT 136.

Curricular Specializations

The six Economics electives should be selected from the following. The department offers three recommendations for students who would like to focus their studies on one area of expertise.  These areas are optional; no curricular specialization is required for the major.

International Focus

Public Policy and Pre-Law

Quantitative Economics

ECO 395 The Capstone Seminar in Economics may not be used as an Economics Elective.

Open Electives

Open elective credit also is required to meet the minimum graduation requirement of 192 hours.

Students are encouraged to use their open electives to minor or double major in a complementary field of study.  A student’s specific interest in economics will dictate the best choice of a minor or double major.
