Admission to the Major
Economics Department - - Bucknell University
Students must apply for admission to the major in the spring of their sophomore year. Applicants must complete the on-line admission form (myBucknell login required). This form will indicate the student's interest in the major, along with his or her academic status.
We will admit approximately 100 students per class year. When the number of applicants reaches above the threshold of 100, acceptance to the Economics major will emphasize academic achievement, with emphasis on performance in Economics classes.
It is strongly urged for those with interest in the economics major to register for economics courses during their freshman year. (see FAQs page for suggestions)
