NOTES: Economics majors will take ECON 2106 instead of ECON 2100 in Area E. Economics majors may take MATH 1261 to complete Area A or D, and MATH 1260 or 2600 to complete Area D. If these courses are used in Area A and/or D, the remaining hours required in Area F must be completed by taking additional 1000-4000 level electives. If PHIL 2200 is taken in Area C, then PHIL 2250 and RHET 1110 must be taken in Area F.
