Economics Major

For detailed official requirements go to the undergraduate academic bulletin.  The information below is designed to give prospective majors a quick overview of the program. 

Generally speaking there are two programs under which one can be and economics major - one outside of the College of Business Administration (CBA) and one inside the CBA (the BS in BA).  

In either case all students are required to take Macroeconomic and Microeconomic principles (ECO 201 and 202 if outside the CBA or 203 and 204 if inside the CBA), Intermediate Microeconomic and Macroeconomic Theory (ECO 365 and 370) and Money and Banking (ECO 306). Thus there are a total of 15 hours of required economics courses.

Both degree programs also require 15 hours of Economics electives (again see the bulletin for your specific degree for some restrictions on these 15 hours).

Finally, all majors under either degree program are required to take a semester of statistics and a semester of calculus.
