Mathematics/Economics Major Requirements

The interdepartmental major in Mathematics/Economics is intended for those students who wish to combine these two areas of study, but do not want to limit their course work in other liberal arts areas by having to take all of the classes necessary for completion of the two majors. Students interested in economics can learn the mathematical approach to this discipline, while students interested in mathematics will learn the importance of mathematics as a theoretical and empirical tool for solving economic and business problems. Students with this interdepartmental major will be well prepared to enter a career in business consulting or to enroll in graduate programs in economics, operations research or applied mathematics.

A student satisfies the requirement for the Mathematics/Economics Major by successfully completing the following twelve courses:

Each department may waive one or more of its own courses for students with advanced high school preparation.

While a student may begin with Mathematics 125 and still complete a major, it is recommended that prospective majors take a similar course in high school if at all possible.

Courses counted toward the Mathematics/Economics Major must be taken for a numerical grade.

Mathematics/Economics majors are expected to all colloquia of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department.

This major is not intended to lead to secondary teacher certification; however, a student may combine this major with a certification major in mathematics.

This major is not open to those who have a major in both Mathematics (or Computer Science) and Economics.

No course to be counted toward a major in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department may be taken on a credit/no credit basis.

Students majoring in mathematics are expected to furnish the Mathematics and Computer Science Department with information about their course work and activities related to the department. The department will use this information when nominating students for awards, scholarships, and membership in professional societies, and as the basis for letters of recommendation. Students are encouraged to include this information on their personal Web pages or to develop a portfolio Web page for activities realted to their major.
