Undergraduate Program

The economics department has two certificates: one in microeconomics and one in macroeconomics. They are best for students who have strong math backgrounds (e.g., MATH 115 & MATH 526) but limited space in their schedules to complete a major or minor in economics. The course requirements and acceptable electives for each certificate are listed below. The certificates are mutually exclusive—a student can complete either or both.
