QUANTITATIVE economics is a tier 2 major. It is not the same as taking regular economics courses although it seems some of the intro courses sound like traditional economics. It is very math heavy. Higher level classes in economics (at least macro) use a lot of Calculus. It is a major at USNA, which I point out only as a way to explore what the Navy thinks it is. A very brief and partial description from their course catalog is this:Hi,
It is stated that qualitative economics is a tier 2 major. My quick question is: Is qualitative economics the same as taking a regular economics course?
The quantitative economics major offers a student the opportunity to learn some economic theory as well as acquiring several mathematics languages which may be used in the study of economics. The quantitative economics major is designed to give students the background on which to build in future studies in economics, operations analysis, finance and business administration.
