The BA/MA in Economics and Math Program
The Bachelor of Arts degree in economics and mathematics/Masters degree in economics program is identical to that of the BA/MA program in economics, except that the candidate must satisfy all requirements for the joint concentration in economics and mathematics as well as the MA in economics.
Joint concentration in economics and mathematics
The minimum requirement is ten courses in economics (in addition to EC 101 or 111, and EC 102 or 112) and seven in mathematics in addition to Calculus I and II (MA 123 and 124), with grades of C or higher, to be distributed as follows:
ECONOMICS: Intermediate Microeconomics (EC 201), Intermediate Macroeconomics (EC 202), Economic Statistics (EC 305), Macroeconomic Analysis (EC 502), Microeconomic Analysis (EC 501), Introduction to Econometrics (EC 414), and any four others to be taken from EC 311 to EC 699.
MATHEMATICS: Introduction to Computer Science (CS 111 or CS 113), Calculus III (MA 225 or MA 231), Optimization Methods in Operations Research (MA 569), Linear Algebra (MA 242 or MA 442) and three other courses, with at least one being above the 400 level, selected from the following list: Differential Equations (MA 226), Basic Statistics and Probability (MA 213), Applied Statistics (MA 214), Data Analysis (MA 416), Stochastic Methods (MA 570), Probability (MA 581), Mathematical Statistics (MA 582), or Introduction to Computer Science II (CS 112).
