Analytic Concentrations at Pardee RAND

In addition to understanding the interrelationships between analytic tools, students may also elect to demonstrate depth of understanding of one set of analytical tools drawn from related academic disciplines. Beginning in the second year, students may select and complete an analytic concentration in either Economics, Quantitative Analysis or Social and Behavioral Sciences. They complete at least five units of elective courses in their chosen area. A total of eight units of elective courses is required.

Elective courses are generally taken during the second or third years of study. Most elective courses are therefore offered on a biennial basis (once every two years). Offerings are subject to change. Some elective courses fulfill the requirements for more than one Analytic Concentration.
