Combined Major in Mathematics and Economics

The combined major in mathematics and economics is intended for those students: (1) who intend to pursue careers and/or graduate study in the more quantitative areas of economics, and (2) who are interested in both fields of study and want to take a full curriculum in both disciplines.  This combined major in mathematics and economics opens career opportunities not available to students majoring in just one of these two fields.

The combined major in mathematics and economics requires 77–78 units completed with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher.
