Major Total: 40 Hours
Graduating seniors must submit the three best papers that the student wrote in any three separate courses taken in the Department of Economics for the outcomes assessment of the economics program. The three papers should be handed in at one time in a folder to the economics office, before the first day of the month in which the student plans to graduate.
At least six of the major courses (18 semester hours), including at least three courses out of ECON 3801, 4071, 4081, 4091 and 4811, must be taken from economics faculty at CU Denver.
Once a student has enrolled at CU Denver, no courses in the major may be taken outside the economics department without permission from the undergraduate advisor. No math is formally required, except for the college algebra prerequisite for ECON 3801. Students desiring a recommendation to a graduate school in economics, however, should consult with economics faculty regarding additional mathematics courses.
