The Department of Economics offers many courses at various levels each term. For the most up-to-date course information please check out the LSA Course Guide.
Policy regarding overlaping courses: No student should be enrolled in an economics course that is officially scheduled to meet at the same time as (or that overlaps in time with) any other course on the student’s schedule. The department does not expect its faculty to accommodate such conflicts, and it will not encourage them to do so.
Students who are interested in receiving credit for their internships should enroll in ALA 125, 225, or 325.
Winter 2021 Economics Departmental Teaching Norms:
The Winter 2021 semester will be different in many dimensions from what we have experienced in the past. To help navigate this new terrain, the Economics Department has established the following set of departmental norms addressing expectations for courses and advising:
- All Economics Department classes will use Canvas as the primary website. All class assignments are to be submitted electronically on Canvas.
- Large classes will feature brief instructor-present videos (those showing instructors and their teaching materials such as slides). All lectures will be recorded and available for asynchronous watching.
- In synchronous classes, students are expected to participate with real names posted.
- Course instructors and GSIs will hold office hours remotely in Winter 2021. Economics Department advising will also be conducted remotely.
- Economics Department remote exam formats and rules:
- Exams are administered synchronously during class time or scheduled evening times.
- Exams will build in time for students to upload answers, bearing in mind the reality that not all internet connections are of equal quality.
- Exams are open-book (and open-notes, and open-Internet).
- Students handwrite their answers to non-multiple-choice questions, then scan to PDF and upload to Canvas.
- Exam questions are delivered to students one at a time, and previously answered questions cannot be revisited.
