For continuing Economics majors, i.e., those who have declared the major or started taking Economics courses before Spring Quarter 2012, the old requirements of 41 credit-hours and the old intermediate-level requirements of taking ECON 2020 and ECON 2030 or ECON 2050 and ECON 2000 will remain, except that, after Spring Quarter 2012, ECON 2000 will no longer be offered. To fulfill the intermediate-level requirements, all students who have not taken both ECON 2050 and ECON 2000 before Fall Quarter 2012 will have to take both ECON 2020 and ECON 2030, even if they have taken ECON 2050.
Also, completing 41 credit-hours after the beginning of Fall Quarter 2012 will no longer be possible by completing eight courses, plus the senior paper, in Economics, as it is now. Any continuing major who falls short of the 41 credit-hour total, because of the fact that any Economics courses he or she takes from Fall Quarter 2012 on will only count for four credit-hours, by more than one hour, will have to take enough courses to meet the 41-hour total.
