High School Preparation for Economics

The most important abilities required for success in the economics major are writing skills, a willingness to think critically, and an interest in the world around you. There is no need to take a highschool economics course.

You do not need to have been a math wizard in high school, but ability to reason logically is very important. In a carefully structured way, we'll teach you the specific math and statistics that you need.
