Requirements of the Major:
Required 33 credits: MATH 131 or the equivalent and at least 30 credits in economics courses (exclusive of BUS 385). Majors in Economics must take Eco. 101 (or 103), 102 (or 104), 202 (or 225), 201 (or 226), 249 and 382 plus four elective courses at the 200 level or higher for a total of 30 credits in Economics. Only 15 credits may be transferred towards the economics major, including courses taken on permit. Students may choose their electives from Business courses at the 200 level or higher (course descriptions can be found here). Please note that ECON499 is considered blanket credit and cannot be used as an elective.

All students must have at least a combined "C" average for MATH131, ECON101, ECON102, ECON202, ECON201, ECON249, and ECON382. A combined "C" average must also be obtained in the above 7 courses plus the 4 required electives. Only courses taken at Queens College are included in these averages. All courses for the major, plus MATH131 or equivalent, must be passed with a letter grade of "C-" or higher (no P/NC option).

Did you take a course on Permit?
A course taken "on permit" is a course taken at another institution after you enroll at Queens. This is only possible with the permission of the department; at most two courses in the major may be taken on permit.  If you took a course(s) on permit, bring your permit(s) with you when you see your advisor.
