Mathematics and Economics Options
The motivation for the program is to equip students with the necessary analytical skill to pursue a graduate degree in either Economics or Mathematics. The combination of Mathematics in their Economics courses and the rigorous techniques from Mathematics will aid students in their problem-solving skills.
- BIOL 1105, BIOL 1205, BIOL 1017
- CHEM 1041, CHEM 1046, CHEM 1072, CHEM 1077 (CHEM 1872/CHEM 1877 (5ch) can be used to replace CHEM 1072/CHEM 1077 (5ch).)
- GEOL 1044, GEOL 1074, PHYS 1011, PHYS 1012, PHYS 1021, PHYS 1022.
- (APSC 1013/APSC 1023 (10ch) can be used to replace the full PHYS sequence (10ch).)
It is recommended that students take at least 6 ch in PHYS courses
