Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

Economics Prerequisite

Students enjoy a bit of downtime in the newly remodeled Center for Advising and Career Services.

While completed coursework in economics is not a requirement to apply to the Institute, we strongly recommend that students preparing to enter the program complete their economics study before matriculating to MIIS.

Economics Prerequisite by Program

  • International Environmental Policy (IEP) students must demonstrate proficiency in microeconomics prior to taking Environmental and Natural Resource Economics (IEPG 8542).

Meet Your Prerequisite

You can satisfy the economics prerequisite in two ways:

  • Provide transcripts showing completion of introductory micro and/or macro economics courses in the last three years. You must have earned a B or better in these courses.
  • Pass a preparatory intensive economics course offered at the Institute.

Economics Preparation Courses

    The Economics Preparation courses are offered twice a year. Once in January and once in August. The dates and times for these courses are below.

You may submit the form via fax, email, or in person.
