Elective Courses
Quantitative economics majors must complete four additional upper-level economics courses numbered Economics 20 or above. There are three restrictions on choice. First, at least three of these four courses must be suitable courses at the 100 level or higher. Second, at least one elective course must be open only to students who have completed the relevant quantitative prerequisite course (Economics 16, 18, or 107) or its equivalent.

The third restriction varies depending on the student’s graduation year. Beginning with the class of 2019, all majors are required to take at least one upper level seminar class. Upper level seminars are courses that focus on a specialized topic in the field of economics. Because of this specialized focus, all seminars have at least one of the core courses (Economics 11, Economics 16, Economics 12/18, Economics 13, Economics 15/107) as a prerequisite. In addition, seminars are small classes that place an emphasis on class interactions, the writing of papers, and the reading of journal articles. Seminar courses provide alternative ways to have “hands-on” research experience that satisfy the seminar requirement. This experience could be offered by a required research paper. However, courses that ask students to complete a series of short policy briefs, a critical literature review, or a group project that requires substantive research and writing all count as seminars. Courses that satisfy the seminar requirement are listed with an ampersand (&) in the Department’s Course Offerings.

Quantitative Economics majors graduating before 2019 must include in their four electives either at least one of the upper level seminar classes described above; or at least one of the 100-level economics courses that are explicitly designated as a “research-paper course,” or a senior thesis credit. Seminar courses are indicated by an ampersand (&) and research-paper courses are denoted with an asterisk (*) in the Course Offerings on the department’s Web page.Majoring in Quantitative Economics After Taking Economics 12 or 15
Students who have taken Economics 12 and wish to be Quantitative Economics majors can fulfill the Core Macroeconomics requirement by:

  1. Taking Economics 18. This will result in the loss of units for Economics 12.
  2. Signing up for Economics 19 as a two unit course in Quantitative Macroeconomics and participating as a regular student in Economics 18. The Economics 19 enrollment must be prearranged with the Economics 18 instructor sponsor and assign the course grade. The student is responsible for all lectures, homework, and exams given in Economics 18 and must earn a grade of C- or above in order to satisfy the requirement. The two units in Economics 19 can not be used for major elective credit but will count as general credit toward graduation.
  3. Taking an extra elective economics course from a list of approved quantitative macroeconomics substitutes. The currently approved list is: Economics 205 and Economics 206.

Students who have taken Economics 15 and wish to be Quantitative Economics majors can fulfill the Core Microeconomics requirement by:

  1. Taking Economics 107. This will result in the loss of credit for Economics 15.
  2. Signing up for Economics 109 as a two unit course in Econometric Theory and participating as a regular student in Economics 107. The Economics 109 enrollment must be prearranged with the Economics 107 instructor who will be the sponsor and will assign the course grade. The student is responsible for all lectures, homework, and exams given in Economics 107 and must earn a grade of C- or above in order to satisfy the requirement. The two units in Economics 109 can not be used for major elective credit but will count as general credit toward graduation.
  3. Taking an extra elective economics course from a list of approved quantitative microeconomics substitutes. The currently approved list is Economics 202.
