Major Requirements for Students Pursuing Latin Honors
HCOL 3101H or HCOL 3102H
B.S. students do not currently have a capstone requirement. For B.A. students, the Honors Thesis is completed in lieu of ECON 3951.
All Economics majors must complete a prerequisite before completing the Honors Thesis — BA and BA-Q ("quant") students must take ECON 4211, and BS students must take ECON 4261. Students need the foundations laid in these courses to effectively complete their theses. For all students, ECON 4993 is recommended as a directed-studies course while students work on thesis research with their faculty advisor.
Summa students must initiate an original research project. Magna and cum laude students may supplement and/or update existing work in the field as their thesis project.
