Econ requirements at UCLA?

Hi all, I'm a junior and I'm strongly considering applying to UCLA. I'm really interested in their economics program. Does anyone have info on the admission requirements for the econ major specifically at UCLA? Thanks in advance!

Hi! It's great to hear that you're interested in UCLA's economics program. Admission to UCLA is competitive and while they don't have separate requirements for economics majors specifically, it's important to have a strong foundation in math and related coursework.

I recommend taking challenging courses like AP Calculus, AP Macroeconomics, and AP Microeconomics to demonstrate your dedication to the subject. UCLA considers the rigor of your high school coursework in their evaluations.

Remember, UCLA uses a holistic review process, so extracurricular activities related to economics, like participating in an economics club or conducting relevant research projects, can showcase your passion and help you stand out. Your application essays should also emphasize your interest in economics and plans for the future.

Checking out UCLA's economics department website for more details and reaching out to the department with any specific questions can be helpful, too. Good luck with your application!
