Certificates must contain at least nine credits of coursework that are unique to that program out of all other certificates and minors.
This certificate is open to all undergraduates. Data Science, Economics, Finance, Food and Resource Economics, and Geography majors are especially encouraged to apply. Several credits will double count toward the Economics major.
Because this certificate requires a substantial number of prerequisite courses, the Department of Economics must consider timely graduation when evaluating applications. All certificate applications should include a graduation plan that demonstrates how the applicant will meet all undergraduate program requirements, including the certificate requirements, in a timely fashion.
Economics majors can apply ECO 3430, ECO 4421, and ECO 4422 toward the major’s required upper-division coursework requirement but will still require a fourth economics course that satisfies that requirement.
Students will take at least one course (GEO 4169) in the certificate that is not applied to the Economics major.
Economics minors can also apply ECO 3430, ECO 4421, or ECO 4422 toward the minor’s elective coursework requirement. Because certificate students must complete nine credits that are distinct from all other certificates and minors, Economics minors may only apply one of the certificate courses to the minor.
