Concentration Declaration Class of 2015
Beginning with the Class of 2015, any Princeton sophomore who has completed the prerequisites will be able to concentrate in the Woodrow Wilson School; there will be no application process as in prior years.
There are four prerequisites for concentrating in the Woodrow Wilson School:1) a course in Statistics,2)a course in Microeconomics, 3)a course in History, and 4) a course in Politics, Sociology, or Psychology. All Courses taken to meet these prerequisites must be taken on a graded basis (no pdf). A course used to meet one prerequisite cannot be used to meet another.
The Statistics prerequisite can be satisfied by one of the following courses: WWS 200, Statistics for Social Science; ECO 202, Statistics and Data Analysis for Economics; ORF 245, Fundamentals of Engineering Statistics; or, POL 345, Quantitative Analysis in Politics.
The Microeconomics prerequisite can be satisfied by ECO 100, Introduction to Microeconomics; ECO 300, Microeconomic Theory; or, ECO 310, Microeconomic Theory: A Mathematical Approach.
The History prerequisite can be met by an HIS course at any level. The Politics, Sociology or Psychology prerequisite can be met by a POL, SOC, or PSY course at any level. Cross-listed courses with these designations can also be used.
A grade of 5 on the AP Statistics exam can be used to meet the Statistics prerequisite. Advanced Placement courses cannot be used to meet any other prerequisite.
A summer course taken by a rising junior can be used to meet a WWS prerequisite if the course is substantially the same as one of the courses offered at Princeton that would meet the prerequisite. As is the usual practice, the determination on substantial similarity must first be made by the department offering the relevant Princeton course, and the course must then be approved by the WWS Undergraduate Program Office. All requests for summer course approval must be submitted to the Program Office before the end of the reading period in the spring.
