Course Overview

The state of the economy affects our lives and what we do has an impact on the economy. Does it then make sense to go through life without being economically literate? Every major decision in almost all fields has an economic dimension and being unaware of that can very easily lead to bad choices with lifelong implications.

Learning Outcomes

This course will teach how to think like an economist, introduce the key concepts needed for economic literacy, and develop the ability to make better and more informed decisions.

The course is designed for students who do not intend to major in Economics and who might take only one course in the subject during their education.

Prior knowledge of Economics or Mathematics is not required.
