First-Year Major Recommendations

If you have a specific major or minor in mind, use the suggestions below to help you make your fall course selections.

Even if you’re not set on a specific major or minor, it’s still a good idea to take a look at these options. Trying a new subject that sounds interesting to you can help make your decision easier later on.

ACCOUNTING, ECONOMICS AND BUSINESS
RECOMMENDED COURSES

Students in these majors often begin taking major-related courses in later semesters.

SUBJECT/COURSE NUMBER TITLE credits LOCATion IN WORKSHEET
Econ 211 Principles of Macroeconomics 4 Social Sciences > Social Science I
Math 125 or 131* (for economics majors only) Calculus with Review I or Calculus I 4 Natural and Applied Sciences > Math
*Math 125 covers the same material as what is covered in the first half of 131, supplemented by a review of high school math as needed; therefore, if you have an ACT Math score of 25 or below, we recommend you take 125. You will then take Math 126 (Calculus with Review II) in the spring to complete the Calculus I requirement.
