EC 320 Introduction to Econometrics (or EC 423 Econometrics) is a prerequisite for almost all 400-level courses. EC 311 Intermediate Microeconomic Theory and sometimes EC 313 Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory are as well. Because MATH 242 Calculus for Business and Social Science II and MATH 243 Introduction to Methods of Probability and Statistics are prerequisites for EC 320 Introduction to Econometrics, it is important for students to take those courses early. See the course listings for details on prerequisites.
