Admission to the Economics major involves two steps. Students who apply to the major are initially classified as Pre-economics. After completing the lower-division core requirements with a “C” (2.0) or better, students may apply to the Economics major. Pre-economics students may take lower-division business and economics courses, but most upper-division courses are not open to Pre-economics students.
The Bachelor of Arts in Economics requires 54 units in the major. Students must earn a “C” (2.0) or better in each course listed below. However, a “C” (2.0) average will be acceptable in the upper-division economics electives.
