ECON 1100 - Principles of Economics

Goals: This is an introductory course in economics. The primary goal is to develop an understanding of the tools and approaches used by economists, and then apply that understanding to current economic issues. This will help you to interpret economic news and economic data while also forming your own opinions.

Content: We will cover both microeconomics (investigating decisions by individuals and firms) and macroeconomics (examining the economy as a whole). We will also examine the role of government in domestic and international markets. The course will also provide a strong foundation for those of you who want to continue with additional study of economics.
