International Economics and Finance Honors majors typically take the following courses in the fall semester of their first year:

First-Year Experience Learning Community Courses

We will register you in these courses.

  1. Philosophy (PHIL 201)
  2. English Composition (ENG 101) OR Theology (TRS 201)

Why am I taking these classes?   Honors students take equivalent honors courses.

Major and Elective Courses

You will need to choose and register for these courses.

  1. ECON 103 (Principles of Macroeconomics). If you are transferring credits for ECON 101 (because of AP classes), then communicate with Dr. Cruz for advice on other Economics classes to take.
  2. Finite Mathematics (MATH 110), Calculus for Social-Life Sciences I (MATH 111), or Calculus for Social-Life Sciences II (MATH 112), depending on calculus placement and AP courses you may be transferring
  3. A foreign language. If you place out of a language (as per instructions below), then contact Dr. Cruz.

1 st Semester Courses

Students in the International Economics and Finance Honors major take an economics course, a math course, and a humanities or foreign language course in the first semester.

Principles of Economics I (ECON 103) or Economics Reasoning and Social Issues (HSSS 102): Your first economics course will introduce you either to the behavior of the economy as a whole and the subdiscipline of macroeconomics (ECON 103) or to the discipline of economics as a whole and the tools of economic analysis (HSSS 102).

Finite Mathematics (MATH 110) or Calculus for Social-Life Sciences I (MATH 111): The study of business and economics requires a strong working knowledge of mathematics. Take the calculus placement exam to determine which course is appropriate for you.

A foreign language: Unless you place out of a language, you should begin or continue your study of a foreign language. If you have some experience with a language, submit AP scores or take the foreign placement exam to determine which level you should register for.

If you place out of the language requirement or are unable to take a language course because of course schedules, consider taking an elective course outside of the School of Business. Review the Business sequence to find elective course options in Art, History, or Literature. If you have an interest in a minor, consider taking a course for that program of study.
