Economics Course Offerings

Our courses are categorized by gateway, survey, and traditional theory courses. 
Below you can find a description of our current course offerings.

  • Gateway Courses: Courses that cultivate life skills and a better understanding of the society and world in which we live. Light in technical methodology. For many, a first exposure to economics as a field of study. Designed to cultivate an appreciation of the relevance of economic matters and perhaps an interest in further learning.

  • Traditional two-semester principles of economics sequence: Courses that give an in-depth overview of the study of economics and a moderately rigorous introduction to the technical constructs of the subject. Prepares students for further study of economics and for courses that draw heavily or moderately on a previous knowledge of economics.
