The philosophy of this program is to provide sufficient command of mathematical concepts to allow pursuit of an economics program emphasizing modern research problems. Economic theory has come to use more and more mathematics in recent decades, and empirical research in economics has turned to sophisticated statistical techniques. The applied mathematics-economics concentration is designed to reflect the mathematical and statistical nature of modern economic theory and empirical research.

This concentration comes in two flavors, or tracks. The first is the advanced economics track, which is intended to prepare students for graduate study in economics. The second is the mathematical finance track, which is intended to prepare students for graduate study in finance, or for careers in finance or financial engineering. Both tracks of the applied mathematics-economics concentration have A.B. degree versions and Sc.B. degree versions.

Economics requirements:

- ECON 1130 (or 1110 with permission)
- ECON 1210
- ECON 1630
- Three other 1000-level economics courses. Of the three courses, two must be chosen from the "financial economics" group and one must be chosen from the "mathematical economics" group . The "financial economics" group comprises ECON 1650, 1710, 1720, 1750, 1759, 1760, 1770, and 1790. The "mathematical economics" group comprises ECON 1170, 1465, 1470, 1640, 1650, 1750, 1759, 1810, 1820, 1850, 1860, and 1870. No course may be used to simultaneously satisfy the "financial economics" and the "mathematical economics" requirements.
