HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY

ECONOMICS (B.A.) MAJOR AN 8-SEMESTER STUDY GRID

including Study Abroad during Spring Semester of Third Year  

 

This is simply an example of what 8 semesters might look like for incoming First-Year students who wish to plan for a semester of study abroad during their third year. If you declare your major later, or are a Transfer Student, your grid will look considerably different. Your choices of courses may vary. Some ECO courses give you the opportunity to fulfill the BH or CC or IS distribution requirements with courses in your major. ECO 184 is required for all majors and can be used to fulfill partially the BH requirement. MATH 61 or MATH 71 are required for all majors and can be used to fulfill partially the NS/MA/CS requirement. Up to six credits may be taken during Study Abroad and apply toward meeting the Distribution Requirements. Students should make sure to meet with the Department Chairperson or their Center for University Advisement advisor at least once every semester.

For more information and to meet your faculty, visit our Department website at https://www.hofstra.edu/academics/colleges/hclas/econ/ Some Economics courses (AP/IB/Transfer) taken prior to Hofstra can count toward the major. Non-Economics courses taken prior to your first year can count toward general education requirements or elective credits, whether taken at Hofstra or transferred in. NOTES * You are not required to take Summer or January courses (for which there is no financial aid). You should be able to complete your degree of 124 credits within four years by taking classes only during the Fall and Spring Semesters. ** While the BA requires that a student complete level 3 of a foreign language, majors in economics should strongly consider studying that language beyond level 3. *** Students are encouraged to consider a minor or double major, whether in another liberal arts field or in a business area. ****The scheduling of the Study Abroad during the Spring Semester of the third year is merely a suggestion. A student could schedule a semester of Study Abroad during the Fall or Spring Semester in their second or third years, or a full academic year of Study Abroad during the third year, or a short-term program in the summer or during the January break.
