Applied Math/Economics

The Applied Math / Economics "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 Applied Math / Economic requirements include five Economics classes:

  • ECON 1010A or ECON 1011A (preferably ECON 1011A)
  • ECON 1011B
  • One of ECON 1126, STATS 186, or STATS 111
  • Two economics classes from this list (if you would like more information on which courses historically counted, please email econupc@fas.harvard.edu)

Ordinarily, Applied Math / Economics does not give concentration credit for the less mathematical classes ECON 1010B or ECON 1123.
