Economics Honors Program

Majors who are candidates for special honors in economics should apply to the honors adviser for admission to the honors program by the beginning of the first semester of their junior year; they must apply no later than two semesters before graduation. A University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average in economics of at least 3.50 are required for admission. The requirements for graduation with special honors are (1) at least thirty-one semester hours in economics; (2) a grade point average of at least 3.30 in any three of the following five upper-division courses: Economics [320K] 420K (an honors section), 320L (an honors section), 341K, 350K (Topic 7: Applied Economic Analysis), and 354K; (3) Economics 378H and 379H with a grade of at least B in each; (4) a University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average in economics of at least 3.50; and (5) completion at the University of at least sixty semester hours of coursework counted toward the degree.

Rationale:
Economics 320K is being changed from a three- to a four-hour course (see proposed changes for completing a major in economics).
