All economics majors must satisfactorily complete the following designated core curriculum courses: MAT 100 and MAT 154 (a student who places into a higher level of math should consult his advisor); six semester hours of political science, psychology, and/or sociology courses the prerequisites for which the student satisfies; and PHI 364.
