Junior Seminars

These faculty-led seminars introduce students to research in a particular area and prepare them to undertake their own research. Junior seminars (ECON 980) require a research paper. Prerequisites: intermediate micro and macro, statistics, and econometrics (concurrent enrollment in econometrics is acceptable). Junior seminars satisfy both the writing and theory prerequisite requirements for the concentration. ECON 980 Junior seminars cannot be taken pass/fail.

Each seminar is limited to 18 participants with preference given to Economic junior concentrators. Each junior seminar has its own lottery or application process if more than 18 students are interested in the course.
