  • Up to 1/3 of the credits used for any other major or minor may be used to meet the requirements of this major.

  • Students must earn a grade of "C-" or better in courses used for the International Relations major.

  • Either ECO206 or ECO207 (3 credits) is also required as a prerequisite for any of the four International Economics courses in this major.

This eight-semester plan (see important details) is intended to guide a first-year student through a four-year undergraduate career, with completion of an academic major and all college-wide degree requirements. The plan is designed as an advising tool – a starting point for careful discussions between a student and his/her academic adviser. In consultation, the student and adviser will adjust the plan to accommodate the student’s prerequisite needs, transferred credits, and other such variables.

Students are responsible for reviewing their Progress Reports each semester to track their own progress toward degree requirements.
