The Traditional Track provides a general overview of economic theory and empirical methods, including courses that apply central concepts from microeconomics and macroeconomics to real-world business and policy settings. We call this track “Traditional” because it has the same courses and structure as were recommended for all UNC Economics majors through the 2017-18 academic year.
You might consider this track if you are interested in:
- Building expertise in the economic approach to markets and human behavior.
- Jobs or graduate schools that value an analytical perspective on business opportunities and policy issues.
(H) Honors version available. An honors course fulfills the same requirements as the non-honors version of that course. Enrollment and GPA restrictions may apply.
