Academic Programs

Nine departmental major programs are offered by the department and there is a core of courses common to all the majors. This allows flexibility for students exploring different options but students electing to major in a departmental program are encouraged to make a declaration of intent no later than the second semester of the sophomore year.

  • Students must complete at least 60 hours of courses outside the department toward the minimum requirements for graduation. No more than 48 credit hours taken from one subdivision of the department may count toward the hours required for graduation.
  • Several courses in the department use Excel spreadsheets. Students lacking a basic knowledge of spreadsheet software are encouraged to enroll in Computer Science 105, Microcomputer Applications, during their freshman year.
  • Students who are planning to do graduate work in economics should be aware that most graduate schools in economics expect their entering students to have the equivalent of Economics 211, 212, 349, 375, and 420; and Mathematics 123, 125, 126, 225, and 304.
  • Students who are planning to do graduate work in management or accounting should be aware that many graduate schools recommend that their entering students have a strong background in economics and mathematics, e.g., Economics 211, 212, and 349; and Mathematics 123 and 125. Students should check into the specific requirements of graduate programs in which they are interested since entrance requirements vary widely from program to program.
