Students considering the Standard Economics concentration should review the recommended sequence of courses as they decide what classes to take during their first four semesters.
Standard Track (A.B.)
- Econ 0110 or equivalent scores*
- Econ 1110** (or Econ 1130)
- Econ 1210**
- Econ 1620†
- Econ 1629 or Econ 1630
- 5 additional 1000-level economics course electives
- (A senior capstone project or honors thesis is highly recommended although not required.)
-Econ 1970 (independent study) cannot be used to meet concentration requirements, but up to two can be used for university credit.
-At most one Economics course in the 1000-1099 range may be applied toward the concentration requirements.
*If placing out of ECON 0110, an additional 1000-level Economics course elective (which is need not be from the set of Standard electives) will be required for a total of 6 1000-level Economics courses. Note that at most one Economics course in the 1000-1099 range may be applied toward the concentration requirement.
**Note that ECON 1110 and ECON 1210 have a prerequisite of MATH 0060, 0070, or 0090, and some advanced electives have further math prerequisites.
† APMA 1650, APMA 1655, CSCI 1450, or MATH 1620 can substitute for ECON 1620. Note that ECON 1620 cannot be used as one of the five 1000-level electives.
