Registering for ECON 390

ECON 390 is a research course restricted to IDST students who are in year 4 standing, having ECON as their primary focus, and have met the prerequisite requirements.

If you are hoping to take ECON 390 for 2021 winter term, the deadline to submit the request form is June 19, 2021. Requests sent after this date will only be processed pending space availability. Please register here.

* When registration reaches 40 per term or the course is already started, we could only register students upon consent given by the course instructor.  

* We will confirm if you have been registered in ECON 390 by July 15th, 2021 for requests sent by June 19, 2021. Please only contact us if you haven’t heard anything by this date. Your patience is appreciated in the meantime.

Note: Please use your UBC email address if available as we’ve had issues receiving emails and submissions from some of the free email services (,, etc.).

Students who:

1) have Econ in their secondary focus area or secondary category, and/or

2) are not in year 4, and/or

3) are not in IDST

will only be considered when there is still vacancy (less than 40) one day before the start date of winter term 2. No waitlist is provided and the remaining seats will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. Non-IDST student won’t be given permission to register due to extremely limited seating capacity.
