Economics Major Requirements


FOR STUDENTS ENTERING PRIOR TO FALL 2013...

To meet the major requirements, students must successfully complete a minimum of ten economics courses, which consist of the following six core courses, ECON 0150, ECON 0155, ECON 0210, ECON 0211, ECON 0250, ECON 0255 and four electives (two of which must be seminars).

FOR STUDENTS ENTERING FALL 2013 & LATER...
To meet the major requirements, students must successfully complete a minimum of eleven economics courses, which consist of the following seven core courses, ECON 0150, ECON 0155, ECON 0210, ECON 0211, ECON 0250, ECON 0255, one of ECON 0212, ECON 0229, or ECON 0280, and four electives (two of which must be seminars).

MODIFICATION TO MAJOR REQUIREMENTS BEGINNING SPRING 2020
Beginning with the spring 2020 semester, economics majors have the additional option of taking one 400 level and one 300 level econ courses to fulfill the upper level elective requirements. This change affects only the composition of the upper level electives component of the major and does not affect the total number of econ courses required for the major.

IMPORTANT NOTES...

  • Double counting courses towards the major requirements in economics is not allowed (e.g. students may not count MATH 0310 towards their economics major and also towards a math major or minor; students may not count ECON 0280 towards their ECON major requirements and also towards a math major or minor);
  • Majors doubling in ECON and PSYC or ECON and MATH may count ECON 0210, MATH 0310, or PSYC 0201 towards the stats requirement for both majors when stats is listed as a required course in both majors.
  • A minimum of 6 economics courses must be taken at Middlebury;
  • ECON 0240 does not count towards the ECON major requirements;
  • ECON 0500 does not count towards the ECON major requirements;
  • Economics electives taken during the winter term will count towards the major only if so designated in the winter term catalog.
  • Electives can be 200, 300, or 400 level courses.
  • Seminars are 400 level courses and the ECON Thesis workshop sequence (0701/0702).
  • Calculating your economics GPA: Eleven courses is the minimum course requirement to major in economics; however, all ECON courses taken at the Vermont campus (including winter term) approved to count towards the major requirements are included in the economics gpa calculation. (e.g. If you take over the 11 minimum course requirement, you may not pick and choose which electives count towards the major.) ECON 0701/0702 sequence grade counts once only in the gpa calculation. Study abroad and other transfer credits are not included in the gpa calculation.
If you are using IB or A-Level Economics credit (must be on your transcript) and did not complete an introductory ECON course, please list the additional elective taken to replace one intro credit towards the total major course credit requirements.
For students entering Fall 2013 and later.
Please list course number of one elective completed.
Please list course number of one elective completed.
Please list course number of one 400 level elective completed. Note: Majors doing a thesis must take one 400 level elective.
Please list course number of one elective completed.

Please select as many of the options below that apply to your situation and follow up with the economics department coordinator and/or department chair if your transfer credits have not been applied appropriately on your Degree Progress Worksheet.
Please list the econ course(s) that you are currently enrolled in. Please only use the last three numbers of the course(s). (e.g. 229, 401)
Please list the econ course(s) that you opted to take Credit/No Credit during Spring 2020 due to the circumstances of COVID-19. (Please note that ECON 0701/702 cannot be taken Credit/No Credit since a grade is required to determine honors.)
