1 Math Cognates include: (i) a calculus course (ECON 155 or MATH 112 or MATH 110 and 111), (ii) a statistics course (ECON 160 or MATH 260).

2 One course in economics (i.e., ECON) at 200-level is required before taking ECON 305 and 306.

3 A total of ten courses, including the two math cognates, are required. In addition to ECON 305 and 306, two of the courses must be at the 300-level or 400-level. Furthermore, one of these two courses must be at the 400 level (Note: both may be at the 400-level). (For more information see https://reason.kzoo.edu/econ/major/)

Course ClassificationThe course offerings in the Department of Economics and Business are classified into two groups:   

1.        Course numbering that starts with “ECON” can be used to satisfy a requirement for only a major in economics.

2.        Course numbering that starts with “BUSN” can be used to satisfy a requirement for only a major in business.
