A Bachelor of Science in Economics requires TEN ECONOMICS courses, at least half of which must be taken at Tulane. Students are strongly encouraged to complete Economics 1010 and 1020 in their freshman year. They are also encouraged to complete Economics 3010 and 3020 by the end of their second year.
A course in statistics offered by the Department of Mathematics (e.g., MATH 1110, MATH 1140, MATH 1230, or MATH 3070); prerequisite for ECON 3230
MATH 1210 - Calculus I
MATH 1220 - Calculus II
OR MATH 1310 (Consolidated Calculus) in place of 1210 and 1220
Note(s): We recommend that students who wish to pursue graduate studies in economics take additional courses in mathematics, including Math 2210 (Calculus III), Math 3070 (Probability), and Math 3090 (Linear Algebra).
* The Honors Thesis consists of ECON 4990 and ECON 5000. Together they count as one 4000-level elective. See Honors for more information.
