Which introductory economics courses should I take?
Our advisors typically recommend any of the following introductory courses in economics:
- Econ 0100, Introduction to Microeconomic Theory.
- Econ 0110, Introduction to Macroeconomic Theory.
These courses provide a two course, in-depth treatment of economics introductory material. Econ 0100 and Econ 0110 can be taken individually, or they can be taken as a sequence in either order.
- Econ 0800, Introduction to Economics. Econ 0800 is a one semester survey course designed for non-majors.
All of the above courses fulfill the School of Arts and Sciences' general education requirements for social science. Students who plan to major in economics, earn a degree in the College of Business Administration, or pursue the Arts and Sciences' dual business major will need to take both Econ 0100 and Econ 0110.
