About half of the economics majors study aboard during their undergraduate career. Some economics courses offered by these programs may be counted for credit in this Department but others cannot. Students who want to enroll in Vanderbilt programs should consult the Global Education Office (GEO) at 115 Student Life. Students who want to enroll in courses offered by other universities with credit to be transferred to Vanderbilt, should consult the A&S Dean's Office at 311 Kirkland.
Courses with a principles of economics course as a prerequisite will usually count as ECON electives below 3000. Courses with an intermediate economic theory course as a prerequisite will usually count as ECON electives over 3000. To transfer as equivalent to ECON 1500, 3010, or 3020, a course must have a term of calculus as a prerequisite. Formal evaluation of courses for credit is managed by the GEO and the A&S Dean's office.
