International Economics with Study Abroad Majors' Suggested Course Sequence.
This is an interdisciplinary major.  For the Economics Department's track, see International Economics.
A PDF comparison of those two majors can be found here.
Course Sequence A below is the normal sequence.  Course Sequence B is the one for students who decide late to have this major.
(B allows for some upper level classes to be taken later in case the pre-requisite is not met.  However, comps cannot be taken until May.)
The words "(already taken)" and "(taken later)" mean that the other course sequence takes it at that time, but you do not.
