If you think you might be interested in majoring in economics, you should take ECON 100: Introduction to Economics (SS) either semester during your first year. It is an introductory survey of economics, including both macroeconomics and microeconomics. It is also well suited for those students who are not intending to major in economics but would like a broad exposure to the discipline.
Credit for ECON 100 will be granted to students who earn a grade of 4 or 5 on the Advanced Placement Examinations in Microeconomics or Macroeconomics.
Potential economics majors should enroll in STAT 113: Applied Statistics (QLR) as a prerequisite to ECON 200: Quantitative Methods. In addition, although calculus is not required for the major in economics, we recommend that potential economics majors take MATH 135: Calculus I (QLR).
The following course this fall is appropriate for first-year students, subject to the availability of seats:
