Economics and Mathematics Major
The Economics and Mathematics major has the same common core and sequential character but its quantitative dimension is expanded to become a thematic specialization. Thus this major also provides rigorous and extensive training in mathematics. This major is particularly appropriate for students planning to do graduate work in economics, which frequently demands greater mathematical training than that acquired through the minimum requirements of the Economics major.
Majors in Economics and Mathematics will need an advisor in the Mathematics Department as well as the Economics Department. See our FAQs page for How to Declare a Major in our department.

1 ECON UN1105 (at Columbia) may be substituted for BC1003
2 Honor’s Mathematics A & B may be substituted for Calculus II & III. (APMA E2000 - Multivariable Calculus for Engineers and Applied Scientists is acceptable substitute for Calculus III)
3 ECON UN3213 (at Columbia) may be substituted for BC3033
4 ECON UN3211 (at Columbia) may be substituted for BC3035.
5 A Calculus-based statistics course such as Stat UN1201 is recommended for students with little or no statistics preparation prior to taking STAT GU4001. Very ambitious students may substitute STAT GU4203 plus STAT GU4204 for STAT GU4001.
6 ECON UN3412 (at Columbia) may be substituted for ECON BC3018.
7 MATH GU4061 Introduction to Modern Analysis is an acceptable alternative.
Economics majors cannot take any economics courses PDF. See our FAQ page for more details.
