Upper-Division Courses

Upper-Division Courses

The core courses incorporate the base knowledge you gained in your foundation courses and expand that knowledge through more advanced financial, marketing, operations and management topics and are usually completed by one's junior year. One Communication Focus (CF) course as well as a minimum of three Writing Proficiency (WP-3) points with a minimum of C- is required. The CF and WP-3 courses must be taken within CBE. These requirements can be met as part of required or elective courses.

The economics and accounting combined major requires completion of 16 credits of upper-division required courses in both economics and accounting. Furthermore you are required to complete an additional 16 credits of elective coursework with departmental advisement - eight of these credits must be in upper-division economics courses and eight credits must be in upper-division accounting courses.
