Notice for Prospective Students

The course MATH-0040 Pre-Calculus for University Access is designed to provide the necessary mathematical background in Pre-Calculus for High School students, lacking this prerequisite. Once this course is taken, then students interested in Economics can take Intro Statistics and Intro Calculus, which are required courses for a number of degree programs in Economics, including the Economics and Finance program.
