* The only acceptable substitutes are the following: 6.041 or 18.600 AND one of these three: 14.32, 15.075, or 18.650. For example, 6.041 and 15.075 is an acceptable pair. ANY of these courses ALONE is not a substitute for 14.30 or 18.05 or 1.010. NOTE: 18.600 and 18.650 are the new course numbers for 18.440 and 18.443 respectively.
**BOTH subjects may be taken to satisfy ONE tier III elective. Neither subject alone or with another subject will count toward the minor. There will be no exceptions to this rule. Because of the maximum two-subject overlap, course 15 majors cannot use these subjects as an elective (14.01 and 14.02 are requirements for the course 14 minor and the course 15 major).
Please NOTE: For students who began undergraduate studies at MIT prior to Fall 2020, the junior/senior Pass/Fail option may not be used for courses that fulfill a minor program in HASS.
Selecting two subjects from Tier II and one from Tier III is not permitted.
Under no circumstances may a student complete a minor with fewer than six subjects. Any student who receives permission from the Economics Department to skip 14.01 and/or 14.02 and take a higher-level subject must take replacement subject(s) for 14.01/14.02.
A maximum of two subjects counting for the minor may overlap with the subjects that are required for any major or a second minor. If a student's major(s) requires more than two of the same subjects that are required for the economics minor, as is the case with the management major, the student must take additional subjects so that at least four subjects are counting only for the economics minor.
