Double Major in Economics

Have you considered a double major in Economics? For a first look at the possibility of double majoring in Economics, please review the Economics Double Major Curriculum Checklist. The double major in Economics is structured such that the required Economics courses fulfill one of the liberal arts core courses (Principles of Microeconomics 0511-211); a liberal arts concentration in Economics; General Education Electives; Free Electives; and in some cases, Professional Electives, within a studentís primary program curriculum. The Economics Department does not add co-op requirements to those of the studentís primary program.

Should you wish to receive a personalized Economics double major curriculum plan, please contact:
