Study Abroad Course List

Introduction: This course list is to help plan your study abroad program. The courses on the list have been approved by the Vice Chair of the Economics Department in the past 4 years. Courses not on the list require additional documentation for review.


  1. Check the list for courses that have been pre-approved by the UC San Diego Department of Economics (updated yearly).
  2. List all courses you plan to take on your Academic Planning Form (APF) for review and prescreening.
  3. If a course(s) is not in the list, please submit course description(s), with your APF, for review.
    1. Please note: review process can take between 5-10 business days.
  4. Be sure to save the syllabi and course work for ALL classes, whether or not they have been pre-approved. VC Famulari reviews ALL coursework to determine
    1. whether the class should stay on our pre-approved list.
    2. whether the class should be added to our pre-approved list.

Disclaimer: Failure to prescreen courses not on list may result in no major or minor credit for these courses.

Key: (VC Famulari will use this language to review the courses presented)

  • Yes – course approved as credit.
    • VC Famulari will indicate how course will be accepted. Example: “ECON 1” or “UD Econ Elective”
  • No – course not approved for economics credit
  • Need more info – if you still plan to take the course, VC Famulari recommends providing her with the syllabus as soon as possible.
