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 Department of Economics teach classes on topics in macroeconomics, microeconomics, game theory, and field experiments, drawing on research that applies the tools and insights of the field in new and exciting ways. Students will 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, problem sets, group projects, and other activities.
