Note: A grade point average of C (2.00) is required in the major with no course grade below a C- (1.7) in an economics course required for the major.

In addition to the pre-business and business core curricula outlined on the BSBA page, 8 economics courses including:

ECON 271 Microeconomic Theory
ECON 272 Macroeconomic Theory
Four units of economics electives (at least two of which must be at the 300 level)

Note: Majors are encouraged to take ECON 101 and ECON 102 and BUAD 202 during their first year, and ECON 271 and ECON 272 during their second year. A basic foundation in calculus (e.g., MATH 190, MATH 211) is required for ECON 271.

Students may plan their course load to pursue a general major in economics or to study a specific area in economics. Students interested in pursuing a graduate degree in economics are encouraged to seek advice concerning the honors program in economics, the mathematical economics major, and/or taking MATH 235 Multivariate Calculus, MATH 245 Linear Algebra, and MATH 321 Real Analysis.
