Related courses are courses taken outside the ECONomics Department, but relate to the field of economics as a supplement to your major and coherent as a group.  Any 2000-level or above course taken from any of  the departments listed below are pre-approved as ECON related courses and will reflect on your Advisement Report. They do not need to all be in the same department.

Additionally, the Department will approve any other 2000-level or above course for a declared double major or minor as relateds, even if it is not on the below pre-approved list.  Keep in mind, these courses must be housed within a double major or minor program to be approved as relateds. If they are not on the pre-approved list below, they will not reflect on your Advisement Report but will be approved on your Final Plan of Study when you apply for graduation in your final semester.

Courses numbered 2000-level or above from the following departments will be automatically applied to related courses.


**Please note: any course cross-listed as an ECON course does not count as a related course. It will count as an ECON major course, even if you enroll in the cross-listed section.**
