Summer 2013 Courses at UCLA

8 Mar
Summer is approaching and some of you may be returning to the Los Angeles area. With that in mind, Vice Chair Famulari has reviewed the courses offered at UCLA which can be taken for UCSD Economics Credit as listed below (note, you will need to contact UCLA Summer Session for information on enrolling in their courses):

These courses have been approved for Summer 2013 only. Courses taken other terms must be petitioned on a course by course basis.

UCLA Couse UCSD equivalency
Econ 1 Principles of Economics Econ 1
Econ 2 Principles of Economics Econ 3
Econ 102 Macroeconomic Theory Econ 110A (Note: UCLA’s course may use a different text than ours, we recommend reviewing the first part of Blanchard before taking UCSD’s 110B.)
Econ 103 Introduction of Econometrics +
Econ 103L Econometrics Laboratory
Econ 120B (Note: must take both 103 and 103L to receive credit. Also, our Econ 120A should be taken before taking the UCLA courses. UCLA’s course may use a different textbook than ours, students will need to review Stock and Watson before taking UCSD’s Econ 120C.)

If you choose to take one of the courses listed above over the summer, simply save your syllabus and coursework and bring it with you when you return in the fall. Once your summer grade has posted, send a copy of your official UCLA transcript to UCSD Admissions and wait for the course to post to your academic history. When the course appears on your UCSD record, bring your syllabus and saved coursework to our office and file a formal petition.

Note: The following UCLA courses will not be accepted for UCSD Economics credit because they are not a good fit with our curriculum:

  • Econ 11 Microeconomic Theory
  • Econ 41 Statistics for Economists
  • Econ 101 Microeconomic Theory

Please note that the Department of Economics does have a residency requirement for department majors.  To receive a bachelor of arts degree in Economics (EN25), no more than four upper-division courses taken externally from UC San Diego can be counted toward  the major. To receive a bachelor of science degree in Management Science (EN26), no more than six upper-division courses taken externally from UC San Diego can be counted  toward the major. To receive a bachelor of science degree in Joint Mathematics-Economics (EN28), no more than three upper-division courses taken externally from UC San Diego can be  counted toward the major.
