Departmental Policy on Prerequisites

The Economics Department presumes that students will have taken the applicable prerequisite(s) when registering for courses. However, all courses have the option of “consent of instructor.” Prerequisites will be waived only when the instructor and the department chair deem that a student’s background render the applicable prerequisite(s) unnecessary.
