Major Requirements - Economics

To earn distinction in the major a student must write a senior thesis earning a grade of A- or better and receive A- or better in 3/4 of major courses (not including math and introductory micro and macroeconomics). Students must complete two semesters of econometrics in order to write a senior thesis.

Below is a brief summary of the major requirements. For a more complete description of the rules of the major, please see the Yale College Programs of Study page.

A road map of the Economics major can be found on the Registrar's Office website.
