Economics Tier III Minor Courses

Undergraduate students will now be able to fulfill the Tier III requirement by completing a minor in Economics. This Tier III Minor in Economics requires that students take:

  • two courses in Economics at the 3000 level or above, followed by
  • a communications-intensive "capstone" course.

It is the responsibility of the student to insure that all prerequisites are met. Further, note that not every 4000 level and above Economics course qualifies as a capstone. Following is a list of approved capstone courses:

  • Economics 4100 (Advanced Microeconomics)
  • Economics 4200 (Advanced Macroeconomics)
  • Economics 4201 (Monetary Economics)
  • Economics 4400 (Contemporary Economic Thought)
  • Economics 4501 (Advanced Labor Economics)
  • Economics 5100 (Economic Problems in Linear Regression)
  • Economics 5250 (Current Problems in Macroeconomics)
  • Economics 5350 (Current Problems in Public Finance)

Students should be aware that not every course will be offered every semester, therefore, they should insure that the program they select is flexible and are advised to check with the Department of Economics and Finance (10-225VC, (646) 312-3450) prior to the beginning of each term regarding course availability.
