The minimum requirements of the undergraduate majors are not designed to be training for doctoral economics programs. Students who plan to continue their education should take more quantitative courses than the minimum required for the major, and would most benefit from the BS in Economics. Preparation should start early in your undergraduate education.
Students who plan on going on to graduate school should participate in research as an undergraduate.
ECON: 170, 171
MATH: 21, 22, 23,24. Also, 32 and 180 can be useful compliments to our economics series that are required.
Post-Baccalaureate Research Opportunities:
Pursuing research after completing an undergraduate degree is a great option for students who would like to gain more experience prior to graduate school. Post-baccalaureate research opportunities can be found through the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) and PREDOC: Pathways to Research and Doctoral Careers.
