Economics AY21 Course Offerings
We are excited about our department’s innovative curriculum for the Academic Year 2020-21. We are offering courses over three semesters, including several new immersive classes. The immersive classes cover a semester’s worth of material in a shorter period of time by meeting for twice as many hours per week. We hope that these offerings add flexibility to your planning and enhance your focus on subject matter, as you may be able to take fewer courses at a time. To facilitate your planning a conflict-free schedule that fits all of your academic needs, we suggest some (color coded) optional “pairings” of first-half and second-half semester courses—where possible we will offer these paired courses during the same time slot. For students who prefer the semester-long format, note that we will continue to offer all required courses in that format too. Students may absolutely take a mix of immersive and full-semester courses during the same semester; our faculty will adjust course planning so that the first-half intensive final exams and final projects do not conflict with ongoing curricula from the semester-long courses. Hyperlinked course syllabi will be posted as they become available.
Please note that this schedule may be subject to change, so you may wish to revisit this page and to confirm course listings in the online Directory of Classes. Economics majors should contact their major advisors with any questions about academic scheduling. All other students can contact our Department Chair: Prof. Randall Reback, firstname.lastname@example.org.
