for Students Interested in the
Economics Major


  1. See "Preliminary Notes" in Arts & Sciences for recommendations concerning a First Year Seminar and a Writing course.
  2. Essentials of Economics I (ECON 103) in the fall and Essentials of Economics II (ECON 113) in the spring. Contact the Chair of the Economics Department if there are no seats available in ECON 103 in the fall. Students who bring in credit for ECON 103 may take ECON 141J.
  3. Students interested in the B.S. degree may take the single course MATH 141Q or the pair of courses MATH 130 and MATH 131Q. Placement for students who do not have credit for MATH 141Q will be determined by the Math Placement Exam. The exam should be taken at the earliest possible time.
