The Experimental Economics Summer Program is designed for undergraduate students. The curriculum aims to teach students how game theory and experimental economics can be combined to inform our understanding of human decision-making and affect research in applied fields. This course employs a combination of hands-on learning about decision-making processes through the use of experimental methods and roundtable discussions of readings. Visit us again soon for information about upcoming workshops.
