Behavioral Economics and Neuroeconomics use tools from psychology and neuroscience to better understand economic decisions. These exciting new fields build on traditional foundations in microeconomics and quantitative methods, and introduce experimental methods from a wide range of behavioral sciences to better understand individual, group, and market behaviors.
Neuroeconomics requires 32 core units, 20 field units, and 20 elective units. Regular courses are 4 units. Core courses include statistics, mathematics, microeconomic theory, macroeconomics, game theory, political economy, and econometrics. Field requirements include courses in behavioral economics, experimental economics, and neuroscience.
