Mathematics-Economics Major — B.A.
The mathematics-economics program provides quantitative background for students who wish to enter graduate school, industry, and government. It offers the mathematics student applications in the form of economic models and econometric studies, and it offers the economics student the foundations and analysis of mathematics necessary for a cogent exposition of quantitative economics. In general, the program places economics and mathematics into the broad context of rigorous analytical studies.
Policy on prerequisites: A grade of C- or better is required for a course in mathematics to fulfill a prerequisite for another mathematics course. A student must receive the permission of the mathematics department to take a mathematics course that is a prerequisite for a mathematics course for which he or she has previously received credit.
|Mathematics-Economics Major Requirements||59-61|
|Integrative Core Curriculum Requirements 1||29-41|
An overall average of C (2.00) or above is required in mathematics and economics courses being used to fulfill the minimum course requirements for the major. No more than one passing grade below C- in those courses may be used.
