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 the economic undergraduate registrar. Please attach the syllabus of the course to the email. Only declared majors may apply. Applications must be submitted after course registration. The DUS will review the submission and then approve or reject the request for major credit.

Note: approval may be denied for courses that have substantially overlapping content with ECON courses.
