Economics and Mathematics, BS
Given the mathematical and graphical models used extensively in economics, economics and mathematics are natural partners. Our combined major with mathematics is designed for students who want to further develop their mathematics skills to enhance their understanding and interest in economics. This combined major is strongly recommended for students with an interest in pursuing graduate studies in economics.
Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified and complete any additional courses needed beyond specific college and major requirements to satisfy graduation credit requirements.
All undergraduate students are required to complete the University-Wide Requirements.
