Q. I’m a first-year student and I’m not sure if I want to be an economics major or not. What courses can I take to find out?

A. Take introductory economics – that is the best class to give you a broad introduction to what economics is all about, so you can decide if you want to take eleven more classes in it. If you’ve already taken introductory economics, and you’re still not sure, then take two more classes – one numbered below 240 this year or next, and either Economics 241 or 242 in the fall or winter of your sophomore year. After those three courses you should be in a good position to know whether economics is the right major for you.
