UAA Experimental Economics Laboratory


General Information:

The UAA experimental economics program promotes student learning through the use of experimental methods in teaching and research. The economics department offers several experimental-oriented courses, including, an upper level experimental course (see below) and principles of macro and micro courses.  Experimental methods are also used in other upper division courses as well as some introductory courses that satisfy GER’s.  Students can also earn cash by participating in faculty research experiments. In addition, we work with students on undergraduate research projects, and are currently working to expand these opportunities.  If any of these areas interest you, please read more bellow.
