A final proposal must be submitted to the thesis adviser by final registration in the fall semester of the senior year. Submission date of the thesis is the third Thursday following Spring Recess. Seniors who undertake Economics 498-99 will be excused from Economics 331, Studies in Social Policies and Economic Research. In addition to the final proposal, submission of the special registration form available in the Registrar's Office and the approval of the instructor is required for each semester of this year-long thesis. (2 course credits are considered pending in the first semester; 2 course credits will be awarded for completion in the second semester.)

  Prerequiste: A satisfactory score on the Mathematics Placement Examination, or Mathematics 127.
  NOTE: Prerequisite: A suitable score on the Math placement exam.
  An introductory course in statistics emphasizing modern techniques of data analysis: exploratory data analysis and graphical methods; random variables, statistical distributions, and linear models; classical, robust, and nonparametric methods for estimation and hypothesis testing; analysis of variance and introduction to modern multivariate methods. Students with a strong mathematical background are advised to take Math 207 in place of Math 107. Those who successfully complete Math 107 may take Math 207 for credit due to its increased depth of coverage and breadth of topics.
