An undergraduate degree in economics is not a requirement for admission to the Program. However, substantial coursework in economics is one factor that tends to strengthen an application for admission. Also, economics is a highly quantitative discipline. For that reason, substantial coursework in mathematics, probability and statistics, and other quantitative subjects also can strengthen an application. Courses in linear algebra and mathematical statistics are highly recommended but not required. At least two courses in calculus, a course in intermediate microeconomics, and a course in intermediate macroeconomics are specifically required for admission to the Program. If these four courses do not already appear on your transcript, please indicate on the Economics Supplemental Information form your plans to complete these courses before matriculation.
