One course with a Communication Focus - Economics (CF-E) or Communications Focus (CF) as well as a minimum of three Writing Proficiency (WP-3) points are required. The CF-E (or CF) course must be taken within CBE, while the WP requirement can be met with courses from any of the combined major departments.
