Next: Education (EDU) Up: Courses of Instruction Previous: Computer Science (CSC)
Major: A minimum of 10 course credits, including nine in Economics and Business; also one course in statistics (INT 201 or MAT 347). The courses in ECB must include 101, 102, 151, 301, 302, and two courses selected from 320, 321, 323, 352, or 361.
Note: A student may not major both in Economics and Business and International Business.
Teaching Major: The same as above. In addition to the foregoing requirements, prospective teachers must also apply for admission to the Teacher Education Program (preferably at the start of their sophomore year) and complete a second major in Secondary Education described under Education.
Second Teaching Area in Economics: The following program in conjunction with a teaching major in Anthropology (individualized major), History, Psychology, or Sociology will enable the student to apply for licensure to teach both the major subject and Economics: ECB 101, 102, and any two of the following: 223, 225, 301, or 302.
Concentrations: A combination of courses from several disciplines may be used as a basis for advanced training in law, government service, and a number of other professional programs. The Department will assist students in selecting interdisciplinary programs for special purposes, e.g., with the other social sciences and natural sciences for environmental studies, and with history and politics for international studies. Students interested in business may design a curriculum to develop the broadly transferable skills needed in management, especially analysis, writing, and quantitative methods; and an understanding of the government policies which affect business. In addition to ECB 151, 352, and 361, which meet requirements for the major, students may select courses from among ECB 243, 245, 253, 320, 340, 341, 351, 357, and 380. Related courses in other departments are PSY 384 (Industrial and Organizational Psychology) and SOC 337 (Work in a Changing World).
Quantitative Skills: For basic skills, majors should take CSC 131 (Computing Practice and Perspectives) and MAT 121 (Calculus of a Single Variable). For strong graduate school preparation in either economics or business, students should take CSC 140 (Foundations of Computer Science), MAT 121 (Calculus of a Single Variable), 122 (Calculus of Several Variables), 221 (Linear Algebra), and possibly 347 and 348 (Mathematical Statistics I & II).
