2015 UC Berkeley Summer Session Courses

Summer is approaching and some of you may be returning to the San Francisco Bay Area. With that in mind, Vice Chair Famulari has reviewed the courses offered at UC Berkeley which can be taken for UCSD Economics Credit as listed below (note, you will need to contact UC Berkeley for information on enrolling in their courses):

These courses have been approved for Summer 2015 only. Courses taken other terms must be petitioned on a course by course basis.

UC Berkeley Course                                                 UCSD Equivalency

Econ 100B Economic Analysis-Macro                                  Econ 110A

(NOTE: This UC Berkeley course uses a different book than UCSD’s Econ 110A and 110B, so students will need to prepare to do some extra preparation to take UCSD’s Econ 110B)

Econ N110 Game Theory in the Social Sciences               Econ 109

Econ 121 Industrial Organization and Public Policy      Econ 107

Econ 131 Public Economics                                                     Econ 130

Econ 136 Financial Economics                                              Econ 173A

Econ N171 Economic Development                                       Econ 116

Econ N181 International Trade                                             Econ 101

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 UC Berkeley 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 UC Berkeley courses will not be accepted for UCSD Economics credit because they are not a good fit with our curriculum:

  • Econ 100A  Economic Analysis – Micro
  • Econ 140 Economic Statistics and Econometrics
  • Econ C175 Economic Demography
