Related Course Credit (Courses Taken Outside of Economics)

Credit toward the economics major for Yale courses in related fields

Apart from the math requirement, at most one course outside of economics but in a related field can count toward the requirements for the economics major. The awarding of major credit for a course outside of economics is not automatic. Declared economics majors must apply for related course credit by sending an email to Mr. Qazi Azam, qazi.azam@yale.edu. Please attach the syllabus of the course to the email. Only declared majors may apply. Applications must be submitted after course registration but before the midterm of the semester in which the course is taken. The DUS will review the submission and then approve or reject the request for major credit.

Note that approval may be denied or revoked if a student applies a department course with substantially overlapping content to the major.
