3. Electives that Only Count Towards the Economics Minor

Note: the combination of 01:220:210 and 01:220:211, each of which is a 1.5 credit course, may be used to count for one of the four electives in the economics minor. Students who are able to satisfy the prerequisite for 01:220:211 with an appropriate statistics course do not need to take 01:220:210 (but are encouraged to do so), but in either case will also satisfy one of the four electives for the economics minor by completing 01:220:211.
