Economics, BA

Return to Business and Enterprise Return to: Business and Enterprise

Faculty: Guo Kai

To graduate with a baccalaureate degree in economics, a student must complete both the introductory (ECON 0105  and ECON 0115 ) and intermediate (ECON 1101  and ECON 1111 ) sequences in micro-and macroeconomics, as well as six other major courses in economics. Completion of the 0105-0115 introduction sequence is a prerequisite to any major course. Business courses may be taken as electives outside the economics major, but do not fulfill major course requirements in economics.

Majors must also complete STAT 1040 - STATISTICS FOR BUSINESS/ECONOMICS  and an acceptable calculus course (MATH 0121 ) or sequence (MATH 0221 /MATH 0231 ). These should be completed by the end of the sophomore year. Majors who are interested in pursuing graduate study in economics or a related field are advised to complete a three-term sequence in calculus (MATH 0221 /MATH 0231 /MATH 0241 ). Also, a selection of 18 credits from the Social Sciences electives must be completed; there is one course from six disciplines.
