(a) 41110, 41111, 41212, 41221, and 41231; and six 200, 300 or 400level courses. (With the approval of a program advisor, equivalent statistics courses may be substituted for 41212.)
(b) 65250, or 65205;
(c) eight courses from outside Social Sciences with at least two from Arts/Languages and two from Sciences;
(d) four courses from any area of study including Economics;
(e) six courses from any area of study excluding Economics.
Courses used to calculate the major average are: courses listed under requirement (a), and any courses taken in the major area(s) of study.
RECOMMENDED COURSE SEQUENCING:

Year 3
Fall: two economics courses, three other courses
