Required Courses (13 courses)

  • CSCI 1450 or APMA 1650 or APMA 1655
  • (CSCI 0150 and CSCI 0160) or (CSCI 0170 and CSCI 0180) or (CSCI 0190 and an additional CS course not otherwise used to satisfy a concentration requirement; this course may be CSCI 0180, an intermediate-level course, or a 1000-level course)
  • Two of the following intermediate courses, one of which must be math-oriented and one systems-oriented
    • CSCI 0220 (math)
    • CSCI 0300 (sys)
    • CSCI 0330 (sys)
    • CSCI 0320 (sys)
    • CSCI 1010 (math)
  • Two additional CS courses; at least one must be at the 1000-level. The other must either be at the 1000-level or be an intermediate course not already used to satisfy concentration requirements.
  • ECON 1130*
  • ECON 1210
  • ECON 1630
  • Three courses from the "mathematical-economics group" (CSCI 1951k can be counted as one of them, if it has not been used to satisfy the computer science requirements of the concentration and if the student has taken either ECON 1470 or ECON 1870).
  • Note that Econ 1620, 1960, and 1970 (independent study) cannot be
    used for concentration credit.  However, 1620 and 1960 can be used for university credit and up to two 1970s may be used for university credit.
  • (A senior capstone project or honors thesis is highly recommended although not required.)

*Or ECON 1110 with permission. For students matriculating at Brown in Fall 2021 or later, note that if ECON 1110 is used, then the concentration will require one extra course, to be taken from the mathematical-economics group.
