Policy on Outside Courses, Online Courses and Winter Session Courses
A maximum of three approved classes taken outside the RU-New Brunswick Economics Department can be counted towards the major. It is advisable to have any outside course preapproved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Professor Barry Sopher.
We do not accept online courses as prerequisite equivalent when grades are not substantially based on proctored or identity-secure administration of a cumulative final exam (i.e. 50% or more of the final grade).
Courses that meet for less than 4 weeks (for example, winter session courses) will not be accepted for transfer towards the Economics Major.
