An undergraduate major in economics is normally required. Thomas Hunter Honors Program students may be admitted without declaring an undergraduate economics major, provided that the above courses are completed. To apply, see the graduate adviser.
Students with a 3.5 GPA in a major offered by the department and an overall 2.8 GPA at the beginning of their upper senior semester may apply for departmental honors at that time. Completion of the following and submission of an honors paper are required. Honors papers are written under faculty supervision and must be approved by a second reader as well. GPA levels must be maintained for the award of departmental honors.
Note: Students enrolled in the BA/MA program may substitute enrollment in ECO 798 and an MA thesis for ECO 49900 and the Honors paper.
