NOTES

* You are not required to take Summer or January courses (for which there is no financial aid). You should be able to complete your degree of 124 credits within four years by taking classes only during the Fall and Spring Semesters.  

** While the BA requires that you complete level 3 of a foreign language, majors in economics should strongly consider studying that language beyond level 3.

*** Students are encouraged to consider a minor or double major, whether in another liberal arts field or in a business area.

****The scheduling of the Study Abroad during the Spring Semester of the third year is merely a suggestion.  A student could schedule a semester of Study Abroad during the Fall or Spring Semester in their second or third years, or a full academic year of Study Abroad during the third year, or a short-term program in the summer or during the January break.
