I want to be an Econ major - now what do I do?
Drop by the Economics Department, Schneider Hall room 476, and make an appointment to see Dr. Wayne Carroll, the Economics Department Chair. He will talk to you about program options, sign you up for the major, and assign you an adviser that matches your interests.
What's the difference between a "Business-Econ" degree and a "Liberal Arts-Econ" degree?
A Business-Econ degree is a comprehensive major in economics consisting of the Basic Business Core in the College of Business plus additional economics courses. Completion of this major results in a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. A Liberal-Arts Econ degree requires a minor and results in either a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.

What Econ courses should a new Econ major take?
A new major should take Principles of Microeconomics (Econ 103) and Principles of Macroeconomics (Econ 104). These courses can be taken in either order or simultaneously. Introduction to Political Economy (Econ 201) may be taken before Econ 103 and/or 104, but credit will not be granted if taken after either of the above-mentioned courses.
What if I need help with my classes?
