Sequential Character - Political EconomyTrack
You will get more out of the major, and get better grades, if you attend to the pattern of prerequisites.
1. Intro before Core An introductory course (ECON BC1003, UN1105) is one of the prerequisites for the core courses in the major.
2. Core before Thematic Focus At least one of the core theory courses (ECON BC3033, BC3035) and sometimes both are prerequisite for all upper level electives. (ECON UN3213 (at Columbia) may be substituted for ECON BC3033, and ECON UN3211 (at Columbia) may be substituted for BC3035.)
3. Core, Thematic Focus, and Interdisciplinary Thematic Focus before Senior Requirement The Senior Thesis builds on the entire major. This means you should plan to complete all requirements other than the thesis by the end of the junior year.
