CORE CLASSES vs. RELATED CLASSES transfer question

<p>does major-related course selection matter when transferring? or should i just take CORE classes only?</p>

<p>i want to major in international relations but it isn't offered at my school so instead i'm majoring in economics since its the closest thing to it.</p>

<p>so should i take courses related to international relations or just core classes that will transfer?</p>

<p>for what it's worth i'm taking
english
sociology
statistics
intro to business
u.s. history</p>

<p>i can't take an econ class til second sem since school won't allow it</p>

<p>Are you so limited that you can only take core classes?</p>

<p>I'm a math major and even though I'm taking many advanced math courses (major-related) I will have finished all my pre-requisites by the end of spring.</p>

<p>IMO, major-related courses are an advantage since it shows that you've already started a tangible path towards your degree.</p>

<p>unfortunately i am limited, kind of. </p>

<p>my school does not allow taking econ classes until second sem, which i am definitely taking advantage of.
i'm also not taking any politics courses until after i complete the history course, which is a two semester course. so i'd really start taking political courses sophomore year.</p>
