The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses.

Undergraduate Studies

Econ 101 is an acceptable course for satisfying the lower-division social science requirement for liberal arts degrees. Currently, Econ 101 does not count towards the requirements for a major or minor in economics.

See the degree requirements under Programs.

Graduate Studies

In addition to meeting Graduate School requirements, prospective students who have a 3.0 overall GPA and competitive scores on the general test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) may be admitted to full standing. A student who does not meet these requirements may be admitted to conditional status.

No specific foundation courses are required for admission to full standing. It is recommended that all students present credit in courses in economics, including Econ 202, 203, and 230 (or their equivalent), and 18 hours in related courses, including two semesters of undergraduate calculus.

See the degree requirements under Programs.
