The Economics department advising memo (pdf) has helpful advice on the major, minor, courses and internships.
Note that calculus is a prerequisite for the Econ department's intermediate theory courses (Econ 80a, Econ 82b and Econ 83a). To satisfy this requirement students must do one of the following:
- Complete Math 10a, an equivalent course, or a more advanced calculus course with a grade of C- or better.
- Score at least a 4 on the AP Mathematics AB test or at least a 3 on the AP Mathematics BC test.
- Take and pass the department exemption exam. A sample of this exam can be found here. Please note you can only take this exam once.
