Designed to give a background in economic theory plus the mathematical
tools needed to analyze and develop additional theoretical constructions.
Emphasis is on the abstract theory itself. Like the Applied Math – Economics
concentration, this concentration can also prepare a student to go on to the
study of economics at the graduate level.

Through the Class of 2015
Math:
Calculus: at least two through MATH 0180 (or its equivalent)
Plus linear algebra: MATH 0520 or 0540
Plus either:
Economics:
ECON 1130 (or 1110 with permission), 1210, and 1630
Plus at least three other 1000-level economics courses. Of these courses, at least two must be chosen from the "mathematical-economics" group
Class of 2016 and Beyond
A capstone project or senior thesis is required for all students in the class of 2016 or beyond
Math:
Calculus: MATH 0180 (or higher)
Plus linear algebra: MATH 0520 or 0540
Plus probability theory: one course from MATH 1610, MATH 1620, or APMA 1650
Plus analysis: one course from MATH 1010, MATH 1130, or MATH 1140
Plus differential equations: one course from MATH 1110 or MATH 1120
Plus one additional course from either the probability, analysis, or differential equations group
Economics:
ECON 1130 (or 1110 with permission), 1210, and 1630
Plus at least five other 1000-level economics courses. Of these five courses, at least two must be chosen from the "mathematical-economics" group and one without double-counting, must be from the "data methods" group
