Course Offerings for 2021/22

Last updated: September 24, 2021

If a professor is listed in the term, the course is currently scheduled to be offered in that term. Please note that these are subject to change.

We are in the process of having our graduate seminars officially renumbered, however the changes are not yet reflected in the WebReg so I want to make sure that you all have the correct information for Graduate Seminar courses. For questions about the seminar course material and lecturing faculty, please refer to the faculty organizer.

For those of you Interested in the Global Economy workshop series, please notice you will register for ECON 249A but your date and time of meeting and faculty are different than Development. For the Political Economy Workshop Series, please register for ECON 202A but again, note that your meeting time and faculty are different from the Theoretical, Behavioral and Experimental economics workshop.

We apologize for the inconvenience, this error should be corrected by WI22. If you have any questions at all about course registration, contact econphdadvising (Econphdadvising@AD.UCSD.EDU).
