Economics as a Required Course
#1
So it went through my old catalog from 2000 and it appeared every degree required at least one economics course.  Moving forward to 2019, I no longer see this as a requirement virtually anywhere.  Was economics a required course a long time ago and has the system been watered down so economics is no longer required as a gen ed?

I don't think it was ever required for a Bachelor of Arts. Maybe a Bachelor of Science?

What school?

I was an engineering major at one time (1988) and Econ was not required. My mom got her degree in Organizational Leadership in 1992, she didn't take econ.

I'm guessing it was just your school.

if it appeared in every degree in an old catalog, my guess is that it was a general education requirement at THAT college. Meaning, that's just what they considered important prior to being issued a degree. That would be college-brand-specific and you would likely find different requirements in other catalogs (a foreign language for instance, some colleges require them per gen ed - others ask for a lab science, etc.)

If you already have an econ course, it will likely count as a general education in the social science category at most schools, so it should still fit in somewhere.
