The AM/Ec "marriage" is a rational one. Mathematical modeling is used extensively in economics, and the foundation of economic theory is formed on a mathematical basis.
The AM/Ec requirements include five Ec classes:
- Ec 1010a or Ec 1011a (preferably Ec 1011a)
- Ec 1011b
- one of Ec 1126, Stats 186, or Stats 111
- two economics classes from this list (historical versions of the list: 2013-14, 2012-2013, 2011-2012, 2010-2011)
Ordinarily, AM/Ec does not give concentration credit for the less mathematical classes Ec 1010b or Ec 1123.
