A grade of at least C- must be obtained in every upper division course in the major, and the average grade in upper division economics courses must be at least C (2.0).
Economics majors are required to take one social science course from outside the major. The course may be a lower or upper level course in Geography, Political Science, Sociology, Urban Studies, or any course that satisfies the Understanding Human Behavior requirement of the University Core.
Students with majors in business may also pursue a major in economics by fulfilling the requirements of the B.A. or B.S. track described above. With prior permission of the Department, double majors in Business and Economics may select two upper division Business Administration courses as part of their economics electives.
