Five additional Economics (ECON) courses (15 credits) numbered between 2000 and 4999. The following guidelines and restrictions apply: | ||

^{1} Post-matriculation residency requirement: In order for ECON 1011 Principles of Economics I to count towards the major it must be completed at George Washington University with a minimum grade of *C-*. Students who matriculate with AP or transfer credit for ECON 1011 are exempt from this residency requirement. In order for ECON 1012 Principles of Economics II to count towards the major it must be completed at George Washington University with a minimum grade of *C-*. Students who matriculate with AP or transfer credit for ECON 1012 are exempt from this residency requirement.

^{2 }The MATH course selected from among MATH 1221 Calculus with Precalculus II, MATH 1231 Single-Variable Calculus I, or MATH 1252 Calculus for the Social and Management Sciences, as well as MATH 1232 Single-Variable Calculus II, must be completed with a minimum grade of *C-*. Moreover, STAT 1111, or STAT 1051, or STAT 1053 must be completed with a minimum grade of *C-*.

^{3} MATH 2233 Multivariable Calculus, MATH 2971 Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning, MATH 3342 Ordinary Differential Equations,MATH 3410 Mathematics of Finance, and MATH 4239 Real Analysis I are strongly recommended for those planning to pursue graduate study in economics.
