The Honors Track in Economics is available to both BA and BSB economics majors and provides the opportunity to pursue a more challenging path of meeting degree requirements. In addition to maintaining a higher GPA, this path requires the demonstration of more quantitative and writing skills than the basic requirements for the BA or BSB major. Students who successfully complete this track (along with the other degree requirements) graduate with departmental honors.
Economics majors will be invited to participate in the Honors Track if they meet the following criteria:
- Declared economics as their major (or double major);
- Completed ECO305 and ECO306 (Intermediate Micro and Macroeconomic Theory) with a minimum grade of B- in each course; and
- A minimum GPA of 3.3 (B+ average) in all economics courses taken at DePaul.
