1 See note on Math Options .

2 If EDUC 113  is required in the first semester, it is taken in place of a humanities elective and is counted as a GE free elective. One GE free elective in the fourth year must then be taken as a humanities elective.

3 Economics majors may apply up to 6 cognate credits toward a Math minor. Students taking the sequence open to Math majors are strongly urged to complete the calculus sequence by taking MATH 222 , particularly if they plan on pursuing graduate studies. Economics majors registered in the Kania School of Management will apply 9 of their elective cognate credits to one of the following areas (exceptions require the permission of the KSOM Dean): Accounting, Finance, International Business, Management, Marketing, Operations Management. The remaining cognate credits may be applied to the social sciences or from the other business areas (but note that no more than 30 credits altogether can be taken in business subjects, exclusive of Economics courses). Care must be taken to observe prerequisites.

4 If a third math course is required, it replaces this GE elective.

5 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.
