The Summer Bridge is composed of two classes: Econ 190 and Econ 191.
The three-week Econ 190 class begins the first week of July. Classes meet every day from 09:00 am until 5:00 pm with one-hour break for lunch. This class provides an intensive review of the core principles of microeconomic and macroeconomic analysis.
The three-week Econ 191 class begins the last week of July. It also meets every day for 09:00 am until 05:00 pm. This course provides a review of calculus, probability, and statistics.
Each class cost $1,500. You will be billed after you enroll for the class.
Both of these courses are intended as a review. As such, they should prove useful even for students who have already completed coursework on similar material. If you have not studied these topics previously you should make every effort to study the material before arriving. Arriving early to take these courses will also give you more time to settle in to San Francisco and get to know your classmates before beginning regular courses in the fall semester.
