Mathematical Economics

Department of Economics, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences.

Most economic theory rests on explicit, formal, mathematical and/or statistical foundations. This specialization articulates and emphasizes these interactions. It is most suitable for students who either have, or wish to develop, a strong analytical background.


  1. Students majoring in Mathematical Economics who fail an Economics course twice will not be permitted to continue in the Mathematical Economics program.
  2. Students approaching the end of their program are strongly advised to take, by arrangement with the departmental advisor, at least 1 of the Special Study in Economics courses (ECON*4900, ECON*4910).
