Degree in Mathematics and Economics

Degree Requirements:

To graduate with a degree in Mathematics and Economics, students must complete at least 240* ects. In addition, the following requirements must be fulfilled:

1.At least 171 ects must be from compulsory courses of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Department of Economics.
2. At least 32 ects must be from restricted elective courses from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Department of Economics (in addition to those included in the 113 ects in (1) above.
3. At least 15 ects must be elective courses taken from at least two different Faculties of the University. Students are entitled to attend Sport courses up to 6 ects.
4. 15 ects must be from the English Language courses (LAN 100, LAN 101, LAN 209).

* The sum of the minimum ects of requirements 1-4 is 233 ects. Therefore, one or two more courses would have to be taken from requirements 1-3 in order to complete at least 240 ects that are required for the degree.

Notes:

a. Students may substitute up to two choices in economics with courses from the graduate program of the Department of Economics upon approval of the Chairman of the Department.
b. The courses in brackets are prerequisites.
c. Students are advised to take MAS 191 Mathematics with Computers (8 ects) as a free elective course.  Taking any other free elective course with 8 ects and another free elective course with 7 ects will satisfy the requirements of 15 ects from free elective courses given that the courses are from two different schools.
