Students will ideally complete EC 301 or EC 302 prior to the fall of the junior year. Students with good mathematical skills are encouraged to take MA 251 and MA 252. Students interested in pursuing graduate study in economics are encouraged to take MA 301.
An example of a typical program of courses follows:
This is a possible plan of study, but it need not be followed in the same order by every student. Consult with your academic advisor.
** EC 220 counts towards the third Math/Natural Science requirement in the Loyola Core.
This specialization is appropriate for those who plan to pursue master's or doctoral work in economics and prepare for careers in research and/or teaching. This path is also appropriate for students interested in analytical careers in economics or finance. Requirements for the concentration are as follows:
Ordinary Differential Equations (MA 304), Calculus III (MA 351), and Analysis I (MA 421) are recommended electives for graduate school prospects.
Students who wish a broad, business-oriented program may elect to pursue the Bachelor of Business Administration in business economics. The BA is described under the Loyola College of Arts and Sciences.
