Program Requirements:

  • Students must fulfill all of the requirements for the MA or MS degree.
  • Up to 6 credits may be “dual-counted” toward the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, and up to 12 credits of graduate work may be taken while an undergraduate and count toward the graduate degree (6 shared and 6 distinctly graduate only). Both dual-counted courses would be 800 level courses. The minimum grade for dual-counted courses is B.
  • The BS Economics and the BS Mathematics and Economics majors require six economics courses at the 300 and 400 levels beyond ECON 151, 152, 301, and 303. Economics Majors participating in the Dual degree program must take at least two of these six Economics courses at the 400 level.
  • The two dual-counted courses may be used in place of two of the remaining four required courses at either the 300 or 400 level. The total undergraduate credits including dual counted courses is 30. Mathematics and Economics Majors participating in the Dual degree program must take one dual-counted course in place of one of the following courses: ECON 302, 430 or 443. The other dual-counted course must be taken as a free elective. The total undergraduate economics credits for this major including the dual counted courses, one of which is taken as a free elective, is 27.
  • At the beginning of the spring semester of the student’s junior year, the student must submit to the Director of the Graduate Program in Economics a list of graduate courses to be taken while an undergraduate. The approval of this list must be obtained before enrolling in any of these graduate courses. Approval will be based on courses already taken, or proposed to be taken, in economics and mathematics. Advisement for the dual degrees is the responsibility of the Director of Graduate Studies of the Department of Economics. A check sheet will be prepared for this purpose.
  • Both undergraduate and graduate degrees are awarded concurrently upon completion of all 4 + 1 requirements. Students are enrolled as undergraduates in the first four years and as graduates in the last year.
