The interdepartmental Mathematics-Economics Program
(MECO) provides interdisciplinary work for students whose interest may
be in economics with a strong mathematical approach or in mathematics
applied to economic topics. Majors are expected to comply with the
general education expectations.
Recommended course sequences. In preparation for entering the program, a student
should completed by the end of the second year:
MATH121 and MATH122
or the equivalent, e.g., any 200-level mathematics course.
Completion of, or current enrollment in,
In addition, a student should have completed at least two of the courses listed below by the end of the second year.
MATH121 and MATH122 or the equivalent, e.g., any 200-level mathematics course
ECON110 and ECON300
COMP112 or COMP211 or any higher numbered computer science course
Required courses. The concentration program requires at least 12 advanced (200-level or higher) courses selected from the offerings of the
conomics and Mathematics departments. In addition to satisfying the entry requirements, students must complete
MATH221 or 223, and MATH222
ECON301 and ECON302
Mathematics courses must be numbered 200 or above. Students may elect
COMP301 and/or COMP312 and may elect other COMP courses subject to permission from their major advisor.
MATH221 or 223 and MATH222
ECON300, ECON301, and ECON302
ECON380 and ECON385
Two additional courses in economics numbered 201 or above, at least one of which must be numbered 308 or above
Three additional courses in mathematics or computer science
A student cannot double
major in MECO and computer science, or MECO and mathematics, or MECO and economics.
A student may, however, double major in economics and mathematics.
