Pathway Program in Economics C
This program introduces students to the approaches to economic research and experimentation that make UChicago a world leader in the field. Full-time lecturers in the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics teach classes on topics in macroeconomics, microeconomics, game theory, and field experiments, which are supplemented by guest lectures delivered by preeminent UChicago faculty in economics and other departments whose research applies the tools and insights of the field in new and exciting ways. Participants can apply what they hear about in lectures during small group discussion sections facilitated by a team of outstanding current UChicago students, as well as in labs and site visits to locations such as the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
