About

A Economics program from Amherst College comprises a sequence of courses that begins with Economics 111, a survey of current economic issues and problems and an introduction to the basic tools essential for all areas of economics. 

Overview

Key Features

Economics 111 is a requisite for all other courses in economics; and for many courses there is no other requisite. After completing Economics 111 a student may enroll in any of a variety of applied courses. Students of the Economics program from Amherst Collegemay be excused from the requirement of taking Economics 111 if they demonstrate an adequate understanding of basic economic principles. Four specific ways of being excused from the Economics 111 requirement are:

  • Attaining a grade of 4 or 5 on both the macro and micro portion of the Advanced Placement Exam;
  • Passing a placement exam that is given by the department typically at the beginning of each semester;
  • Attaining a grade of 6 or 7 on the higher level International Baccalaureate in Economics.
  • Attaining a grade of A on the A levels.

In addition to Economics 111, all majors must complete the sequence of core theory courses:  Economics 300 or 301, 330 or 331, and 360 or 361.  These courses can be taken in any order, but it is recommended that a student take Economics 300/301 or 330/331 before enrolling in Economics 360/361.  In addition, it is not generally advisable to take more than one of the core theory courses in a given semester.
