*Students interested in pursuing graduate studies in economics are encouraged to take MATH 12002 and 12003 Analytical Geometry and Calculus I and II and other mathematical and statistics courses. Economics majors are strongly encouraged to take MATH 11012 or 11022 (or MATH 12002).
**A minimum C (2.0) grade must be earned to fulfill the writing-intensive requirement.
***Interested students with the appropriate prerequisites may want to take—with departmental approval—MATH 40011 Introduction to Probability Theory and Applications and MATH 40012 Introduction to Statistical Concepts instead of MIS 24056 and ECON 32050.
****Students may take or use any course at any level as long as the minimum 39-hour requirement for upper-division courses is satisfied for graduation with a B.B.A. Exceptions: Maximum 4 credit hours of physical education activity (PEB) courses and maximum 4 credit hours for courses in applied music and music ensembles (MUS courses with a second digit of 5, 6 or 7) combined may be counted toward the 121-total hour or 39-upper-division-hour graduation requirement. General elective courses may be selected from any area and at any level provided students do not go over the PEB, applied music and ensemble music restriction and they satisfy the 39 hour upper-division requirements. A minor (business or non-business) is encouraged. There is no limit on other music coursework. Any other exceptions must be approved by the assistant dean. Credit for ENG 11001 or MATH 10023 or 10024 may apply toward general electives. A major in economics also is offered in the College of Arts and Sciences.
+ If a student has taken MATH 10041 Elementary Probability and Statistics they may use it in place of MIS 24056.
