College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences > Academics > Economics (BA) > Major Requirements
MAT 135 is not a requirement for the major but its successful completion is a prerequisite for MAT 136. MAT 135 is approved to count for the Liberal Studies Program’s Scientific Inquiry-Elective learning domain.
MAT 150 and MAT 151 may be substituted for MAT 135 and MAT 136.
The Economics major requires students to complete principles of micro- and macroeconomics, intermediate micro- and macroeconomic theory, 2 terms of calculus, and 1 term of statistics. While the program does not require students to select a particular concentration for their studies, students may want to focus the selection of their economics electives to match their academic and future career interests. The department recommends the following Focus Areas as an advising tool for students to use in their course selection. In addition to the courses listed below, the department offers Special Topics courses [ECO 398] that may be relevant to one or more of the Focus Areas.
For students participating in the Economics Honors Track, this course can be used to satisfy the Advance Elective requirement [courses carrying a prerequisite of ECO 305, ECO 306, or ECO 375].
Note: Students may want to add a language to this FA.
ECO 101, ECO 250, ECO 393 and ECO 395 may not be used as Economics Electives towards a major or minor in Economics.
Open elective credit also is required to meet the minimum graduation requirement of 192 hours.
Students are encouraged to use their open electives to minor or double major in a complementary field of study. A student’s specific interest in economics will dictate the best choice of a minor or double major.
