Students interested in majoring in economics should consult the "four-year guides." All four-year guides are meant as examples of how a degree can be completed in four years. Individual guides will be developed for each student in consultation with the academic advisor. Prior credit, course availability, and student needs must be considered in developing the individual guide.

Are you planning on going to graduate school?

Economics at the graduate level requires a strong mathematical background. Students who wish to pursue a graduate degree in economics should take as many of the following courses as possible:

  • MAT 1025
  • MAT 1110. Calculus I

  • MAT 2240. Introduction to Linear Algebra
  • MAT 3130. Introduction to Differential Equations

One additional 3-credit MAT course is required to earn a minor in math.
