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

Call for HDSI Undergraduate Scholarship applications!

The Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute’s Undergraduate Scholarship application is now open!

The deadline has been extended to Sunday, November 29th at 11:59 pm.

Reminder that these are student-initiated mentored projects. Each student will get $2000-$2500 (per-student funding decreases slightly as a function of group size). Mentors receive $500 per project they mentor.

Last year we funded 20 projects total and we expect to fund a similar number this round.

You can find more information here, but to highlight a few important items:

• Students do not need to apply with an identified mentor. If their application is selected and they do not have a mentor identified, we will work to pair them with a mentor associated with HDSI at that time.
• Students from any major can apply, but Data Science majors and minors receive priority.
• The funding period is over a full year (January 2021- December 2021), so students must be planning to remain enrolled at UCSD through next Fall quarter.
• Students may apply as a group with a maximum of three group members.
