Where students are completing both an Economics and a Environmental and Resource Economics major, an additional senior elective (at ECOS2000 or ECOS3000 level) should be completed for one of the majors, as both majors require the compulsory unit ECOS2001/ECOS2901. Both majors must include at least 36 senior credit points without counting a senior unit i.e. ECOS2001/ECOS2901 towards two separate majors.
