Considering Economics as a major or minor? —econ advisors suggest you read this. With registration approaching, I want to be sure you understand the prerequisites for the economics major or minor. The prerequisites are Economics 101, 102, and Math 115, all with a grade of C or better. We sometimes see students confused by the math prerequisite. Math 120 does not count for the prerequisite for the major. That means credit for the AB AP calculus exam does not satisfy the calculus prerequisite for the economics major. You may take Math 115 or a higher level calculus class, or an Honors equivalent. That is, Math 116 with a C or better satisfies the math prerequisite for the economics major or minor. Math 121, credit for the BC AP calculus exam does count for the calculus prerequisite for the major or minor. The core microeconomic theory class for the major, Econ 401, has an enforced prerequisite of a C or better in Math 115. Again, Math 120 does not satisfy the calculus prerequisite. This prerequisite is strictly enforced. I want you to be aware of this now, because some students who planned to transfer calculus last summer in preparation for Econ 401 fall term were closed out of Econ 401. If you transfer the calculus class, your enrollment for Econ 401 will be delayed until the credit is on your UM record. The class could easily be closed by the time your credit is transferred. To summarize this email advice, if you're considering economics as a major or minor, and have not completed the Math 115 prerequisite, we recommend that you do so ASAP. Please let me know if you have any questions.
