Undergraduate majors in both Economics and Mathematics consider graduate programs in Economics or related fields. In order to be accepted into such graduate programs, an undergraduate degree in one of those disciplines is typically required, and extensive and specific training in the other is also needed. This program combines the requirements of a degree in Economics with specific coursework in Mathematics suited for a potential graduate student. Additionally, students who may not pursue a graduate degree program are likely to find the program more marketable for post-graduation.
Requirements for the Economics major with concentration in Mathematics
* Students who enter the program early should take MATH 170 instead of MATH 150 to avoid duplication of coursework.
ECON 491 requires a sole-authored research project in Economics. This project should satisfy the department’s ordinary requirements, while also demonstrating evidence of the student’s Mathematics concentration.
Without MATH 150, this program requires 60 credit hours. With overlaps in the core, the degree requires a minimum of 111 credit hours.
TOTAL Minimum Hours Required for Degree: 120 Semester Hours
