Notes

  1. Students who intend to pursue graduate studies in economics should select MAT 1300 or the sequence MAT 1320 and MAT 1325 (this last course can be replaced by MAT 1322). A strong background in mathematics helps students succeed in advanced courses and graduate studies in economics.
  2. Students who intend to participate in the Coop program should take ECO 3150 and ECO 3151 in their second year.
