The admission requirements for economics majors depend on the economics option you choose.
Economics Major, Business Option or Financial Analyst Option
You'll start out as a pre-business major at the Miller College of Business. You will be classified as pre-business students until you:
- demonstrate proficiency in computer skills by examination or through credit in ISOM 125, CS 104, or its equivalent;
- an accumulative minimum grade-point average of 2.0; and
- complete the following courses with a minimum grade-point average of 2.25: ACC 201, 202; ECON 201, 202, 221; ENG 103, 104; ISOM 135; and MATH 132.
After you meet the above admission requirements to the Miller College of Business, you can pursue a major in economics (or other business major).
