We hope you will join us online this summer! Our Summer Session team is here to help via email at summersession@uchicago.edu.

Economics from an Experimental Perspective

Program(s): Immersion

This course is currently at capacity. We are admitting students to the waitlist only.

*Taught Online for Summer 2020*  A growing field in which the University of Chicago has been a leader, experimental economics uses experimental methods – observing everyday interactions and decisions made by people either in the lab or in the field -- to explore economic questions ranging from how markets and other exchange systems work to what motivates people to make decisions about matters such as conserving environmental resources or donating to charitable causes. Students will participate in laboratory experiments and discuss the results, thereby learning the underlying economic principles and the economic questions that the experiments were designed to address. They will also engage in solving specific economic problems both individually and in a group.

Course Considerations

For students looking to get an in-depth focus of a specific form of economics. Students looking for a wider viewpoint of economics may want to check out Pathways in Economics.
