Each student enrolling in one or more Coggin College of Business (CCB) courses numbered 3000 or higher is assessed a $13 fee during each fall and spring semester. The fee is just $13, regardless of how many CCB courses the student takes. The fee is assessed at the same time and in the same manner as all other UNF fees, and the student pays this fee when he/she pays his other tuition and fees. In return, each student is able to pick up a copy of The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) from locations within the College. Moreover, each student will receive access to all of the WSJ' s on-line editions (e.g., European, Asian) through the UNF MyWings portal. Access to these publications is free during summer terms for students enrolled in these courses. Students who already have personal subscriptions can have the WSJ refund those dues. For information on that process, as well as more about Coggin’s partnership with the WSJ , please visit http://www.unf.edu/ccb/wsj.htm . 3. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES This course introduces students to international trade theory and practice. It provides a theoretical basis of trade and discusses empirical findings related to current international trade issues. Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to: a. Use the Ricardian and the Heckscher-Ohlin theories to analyze trade patterns b. Understand and discuss national policies affecting trade c. Relate the international trade topics covered to important contemporary issues such as the effects of globalization, WTO, income inequality, poverty in the world, and the impact of trade policies on the environment.
