    I took nine econ classes and four finance classes that could have been labeled as economics.

    About 12, counting the commerce equivs as econ. Between 4 and 7 more to go, depending on how you count. The number of credits or the courses themselves were required for me.

    The key missing variable is whether you are on semesters or quarters.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I am going to be taking around 23 Economics courses. They are all going to be one semester (half a year). That equates to around 2 and 1/2 years worth of economics courses (assuming 5 per semester)...Is this the norm?

    Why so many? I would think you would be better off taking some math or graduate level econ classes.

    I've taken 9 undergrad econ courses (semester system); 7 of them freshman year and 2 sophomore year; I've also done and will do some more grad level econ though. I bet if you ask your professors they will tell you to take more math over more econ if you're planning on grad school.

    That's quite a lot. When I get to finish my undergraduate degree, I would have taken around 12 Economics classes, plus the thesis seminar class (semester system.)

    Intro Micro
    Intro Macro
    Macro
    Micro
    Math Econ
    Econometrics
    5 electives

    I agree with the earlier post; your professors will most probably tell you to take more math courses.

    I had 29 econ/finance courses and only 6 math...
    In my university one cannot choose courses - all are obligatory.
    Stupid system...
