Question for Haas/Econ double majors

<p>So for economics we're required to take five upper division elective courses. And then the website gives a list of courses that you can take to fulfill this requirement. </p>

<p>There are 7 UGBA courses that you're allowed to take as economic electives. AND because they're cross-listed with upper-division econ courses, they don't count towards the two course maximum of taking electives outside of the econ department. </p>

<p>What I've interpreted from all this is that by taking the following courses, you can get credit for both economics upper division electives and haas upper division business electives??</p>

<p>UGBA 103** Introduction to Finance (Beginning Spring 2008, Students will receive no credit for Econ 136 after taking UGBA 103. Students intending to major in Business should not take Econ 136.)
UGBA 118** International Trade (Economics c181 and UGBA 118 are considered by the university to be equivalent courses. Students will not receive credit for both courses)
UGBA 131** Corporate Finance and Financial Statement Analysis
UGBA 132** Financial Institutions and Markets
UGBA 133** Investments
UGBA 178** Introduction to International Business
UGBA 180** Real Estate and Urban Land Economics</p>

<p>Current</a> Majors</p>

<p>Is this correct or am I missing something? Thanks</p>

<p>The econ website says only two courses can overlap.</p>

<p>I know that, but the econ website also says:</p>

<p>"Courses officially cross-listed with upper-division economics courses do not count toward the two course maximum. The outside courses on this list are marked with **."</p>

<p>And all of those business courses are marked with **, meaning they are officially cross-listed with upper division econ courses, meaning they do not count toward the two course maximum. Is this correct?</p>

<p>Sorry, I can't answer your question, but I have a REALLY quick question and I thought it would probably be appropriate in this thread, I didn't really want to make a new thread and nobody looks at the Cal Bar.</p>

<p>If I got 5's on both AP Micro and Macro tests, am I exempt from Econ 1? I know for Haas it is, but it doesn't say anything about it for the Econ major. Will I be able to take classes like Econ 100A if I got both 5's?</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>Yeah, you're exempt from taking Econ 1 or 2. BUT keep in mind that freshmen can't take Econ 100A or 100B, it's reserved for sophomores, juniors, and seniors. I just learned this a few days ago, had to change my intended schedule...</p>

<p>The following Advanced Placement Examinations are accepted by the Economics Department as fulfilling course credit:
Economics Micro/Macro - scores of 4-5 on both exams are equivalent to Economics 1 or 2.</p>

<p>Prospective</a> Majors</p>

<p>No, you are incorrect. First, you are confusing 2 issues. First, you can only overlap 2 upper div courses between majors. Second, for Econ, you can only take 2 upper div courses outside the Econ department at Berkeley. Thus, the 2 overlapping courses will most likely be your intermediate Micro/Macro classes, unless you plan to take both Econ 100/101A/B and UGBA 101A/B.</p>

<p>Regarding taking courses outside the department -- if you continue reading, it says: "The outside courses on this list are marked with <strong>." Outside courses do NOT equal crosslisted courses. Crosslisted courses are those that have a C before the course number, such as C110, or C1</strong>. Since those courses you listed are NOT officially crosslisted, they count as being outside the major. </p>

<p>Thus, you could take up to 2 of those courses you listed, but they would not count for both majors if you have already used the Macro/Micro theory classes to count for both majors. They could either count for Econ OR for Business, but NOT for both.</p>

<p>^yeah, i remember reading somewhere that you only receive units or credit or whatever its called from officially cross-listed courses from one of the departments....so you'd have to choose between credit for econ or business, and if it's business you can use it as part of the 2 course overlap to have it also count for econ, but it doesn't do so automatically and outside of that limit...</p>

<p>Oh okay, I see. Thanks for clearing that up guys!</p>

<p>hella confusing...</p>
