Area Studies

A major in economics who concentrates in African-American or Area Studies may substitute the non-economics courses in the concentration for one lower-level elective in the Economics major, but not for an advanced elective (350-394).

Note on Course Numbers: Courses between 201 and 240 are lower-level electives and are open to first-year students who have taken 110 or 120. Courses between 260 and 349 are intermediate electives which do not build on specific prior experience, but do require some maturity, so they have any two economics courses or permission of the instructor as prerequisites. Courses 350 and above are advanced electives primarily designed for Economics and Political Economy majors and have theory prerequisites.
