BA Program in Mathematics/Economics

Mathematics/Economics Program

This major, offered jointly by the departments of economics and mathematics, is designed to give the student an excellent background in modern economic analysis and a solid grounding in those mathematical disciplines necessary  for a full understanding of economic analysis.  Because it both demands and fosters careful reasoning as well as facility with abstract formulations of problem situations, it is an apt pre-law program.  Its high degree of difficulty makes it attractive to business recruiters and it is particularly appropriate for graduate studies in economics, business and other applied quantitative fields.
