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 filling out the “Request for Related Course Credit” form (also available in the Undergraduate Studies office at 28 Hillhouse) and turning it in along with the course syllabus to Mr. Qazi Azam,, 28 Hillhouse Room 101A . Only declared majors may apply. The form is due by the midterm of the semester in which the course is taken. Late submissions will not be accepted.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.
