Junior and senior economics majors desiring a directed reading course in special topics in economics not covered in other graduate or undergraduate courses may elect this course, not more than once, with written permission of the director of undergraduate studies and of the instructor. The instructor must be a member of Yale’s Economics department. The instructor meets with the student regularly, typically for an hour a week, and the student writes a paper or a series of short essays. Junior and senior majors may take this course for a letter grade, but it does not count toward the senior requirements. It can only count as an elective.
Note: While the DUS is the professor of record (on the transcript) a student who wishes to do a directed reading needs to find an advisor.
