TENTATIVE Course offerings: 2023-24

If a professor (or STAFF) is listed in the term, the course is currently scheduled to be offered in that term. The number of names shown by each course, will indicate the number of classes we will be offering of that course in that quarter.  For example, in Winter 2024, there are two classes of ECON 3, taught by Rondina, so he is listed two times.


Please note that all course offerings are subject to change 

 

Note: there is a comprehensive list of elective courses sorted by interest here. Academic Senate approved Economic courses, with title, course descriptions and prerequisites are here.
