Emlyn Davis in Edinburgh


Studying abroad in Edinburgh for my Econ major was a great experience. Adam Smith, the “Father of Economics,” was Scottish and as such, the Economics program at UoE was fantastic. I took a class on Experimental Economics, in which we were able to learn in lectures & discussion sections, similar to USC. The UK learning structure is slightly different from ours in the US, so a majority of the grading is based on writing and a comprehensive project at the end of the term. I think this helped me dive deeper in my understanding of the field, rather than simply memorizing and restating factoids. All in all, it was a great experience and the transfer of credits was hassle-free!
