Economics 288 (Arts and Social Sciences)

This is a wide-ranging course in Economics stretching over two semesters, aimed at students who desire a broader background in Economics, without the Mathematical approach required for continuation courses (as e.g. in Economics 114 and 144, which develop the tools for further studies in Economics). The course is thus broad rather than deep, aimed at understanding real economic issues and events.

After completing this course, students will have a working knowledge of:

  • basic micro and macro-economic theory (non-technical)
  • the economic environment
  • the functioning of the economy
  • the economic impact of policy.

 

Prerequisite module: None
Continuous Assessment
Credits: 32
