Variable-unit Courses (ECN 99 and 199)

Individual Study and Special Study courses for undergraduates

Economics 99 (Individual Study for Undergraduates) provides a student with the opportunity to do special projects, research, or assignments under the supervision of an economics professor. Students may earn between 1-5 units, graded on a P/NP basis. Individual study projects are developed in consultation with a faculty member.

Economics 199 (Special Study for Advanced Undergraduates). These courses involve supervised independent study and research requiring adequate background in the subject proposed for study as well as prior completion of 84 overall units. Students may earn between 1-5 units, graded on a P/NP basis. Economics 199 units may not be counted toward fulfilling the 44 upper division economic unit requirement for the major. Exception to this rule may be made if a student is taking 199 in conjunction with a university or departmentally sponsored special program (MURALS).
