Required Courses

Required Courses:

The required courses build a strong foundation of economic and mathematical theory. One course with a Communication Focus (CF) as well as a minimum of three Writing Proficiency (WP-3) points are required. The CF course must be taken within CBE, while the WP requirement can be met with courses from any of the combined major departments. These requirements can be met as part of required or elective courses.

General University Requirements (GUR):
Several of your prerequisite and required courses also count as GURs. Look for classes in the course lists below that are labeled as "GUR." By planning your schedule properly you can reduce the total number of classes needed.
