    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?

    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:

    Quantitative Economics is simply (generally) a BS in Econ vice a BA. As mentioned above, it has a greater focus on math, with additional class requirements like calculus and statistics. Due to the calculus requirement, it actually overlaps nicely with navy scholarship program requirements. It's the most popular major among Tulane NROTC mids.
