Economics, Bachelor of Arts/Master of Arts (B.A./M.A.)

The B.A./M.A. program is an intensive program that affords academically gifted undergraduate students the opportunity to obtain an M.A. degree along with a B.A. degree. To be admitted into the BA/MA, the prospective student needs to have taken at least 30 credits with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. Students need grades of B+ or higher in ECO 10250, ECO 10350, ECO 20150, ECO 20250, and ECO 20350 or equivalent courses. A student combines the BA and MA degrees by: completing 8 required courses for the undergraduate Economics major (calculus plus ECO 10150, ECO 10250, ECO 10350, ECO 20150, ECO 20250, ECO 20350, and ECO 20450), then fulfilling the MA requirements as noted in the Graduate Bulletin. The 6 upper-level undergraduate courses are substituted by MA courses.

Additional Requirements

At least a 2.0 GPA in the major is required for graduation. The GPA in the major is calculated from all courses for the major, including Calculus, that have been taken at City College or through ePermit, including all courses in excess of the minimum required for the degree. Courses must have a grade of C- or better to fulfill the requirements of the major. A D grade is inadequate. In addition to college requirements for residency, at least two of the four "Major Core" and three of the four "Field" courses must be completed at CCNY.

Majors must place into calculus (MATH 20100 or MATH 20500 or higher) or may be required to complete the prerequisite sequence through MATH 19500.

Total Credit Hours Required for obtaining a B.A. degree: 120, at least 90 of which must be in the Liberal Arts and Sciences (RLA).
