Courses that Fulfill the Empirical Economics Requirement

The Empirical Economics requirement must be satisfied by the end of a student's second year in residence. It is intended to ensure that every student is acquainted with some real economic institutions and with how economic data are analyzed. The requirement is satisfied by passing a course (with a grade of B or higher) approved for this purpose, with the agreement of the instructor. The list of approved courses is announced at the beginning of each year.
