Econ 499H: Honors in Economics

As part of the 400-level economics courses used for admission to the honors program, students undertake a research project on a topic approved by the course and honors instructors. In ECON 499H, students complete the project undertaken in the first semester and meet all course requirements for ECON 499H, including a public presentation of their research. Because ECON 499H is a writing proficiency course, students completing this course with a B or better are not required to take ECON 495.  Students may take this course more than once for a maximum of 6.0 units. This is an approved Writing Proficiency course; a grade of C- or better certifies writing proficiency for majors

Prerequisites: Admission to Honors in Economics Program, completion of GE Written Communication (A2) requirement, ECON 301 or ECON 302, permission of instructor.
