Applied Math/Economics

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 (if you would like more information on which courses historically counted, please email econupc@fas.harvard.edu)

Ordinarily, AM/Ec does not give concentration credit for the less mathematical classes Ec 1010b or Ec 1123.
