Majoring in Quantitative Economics after Taking Economics 12 or 15 Students who have taken Economics 12 and wish to be Quantitative Economics majors can fulfill the Core Macroeconomics requirement by: Taking Economics 18. This will result in the loss of credit for Economics 12. Signing up for Economics 19 as a 1/2 credit course in Quantitative Macroeconomics and participating as a regular student in Economics 18. The Economics 19 enrollment must be prearranged with the Economics 18 instructor sponsor and assign the course grade. The student is responsible for all lectures, homework, and exams given in Economics 18 and must earn a grade of C- or above in order to satisfy the requirement. The 1/2 credit in Economics 19 can not be used for major elective credit but will count as general credit toward graduation. Taking an extra elective economics course from a list of approved quantitative macroeconomics substitutes. The currently approved list is: Economics 205 and Economics 206. Students who have taken Economics 15 and wish to be Quantitative Economics majors can fulfill the Core Microeconomics requirement by: Taking Economics 107. This will result in the loss of credit for Economics 15. Signing up for Economics 109 as a 1/2 credit course in Econometric Theory and participating as a regular student in Economics 107. The Economics 109 enrollment must be prearranged with the Economics 107 instructor who will be the sponsor and will assign the course grade. The student is responsible for all lectures, homework, and exams given in Economics 107 and must earn a grade of C- or above in order to satisfy the requirement. The 1/2 credit in Economics 109 can not be used for major elective credit but will count as general credit toward graduation. Taking an extra elective economics course from a list of approved quantitative microeconomics substitutes. The currently approved list is Economics 202. Learning Objectives Economics Use fundamental economics concepts - such as scarcity, incentives, trade-offs, opportunity costs, comparative advantage, price system, efficient allocation of resources, market failures, government failures, and scope of fiscal, monetary, and regulatory policies. Apply economic theory to a range of economic issues across a variety of fields and economics sub-disciplines, and effectively communicate their analysis. Use statistical and econometric methods - including data gathering, data analysis, and hypothesis testing – in applied empirical work. Apply multivariate calculus and linear algebra to the study of economic issues, and to use mathematical tools to derive results in economic theory and econometrics.
