    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Mankiw's textbook is read by economics students all over the world, and it's easy to see why--he explains concepts so well, and he makes economics so interesting and relatable to daily life. The class also features guest speakers such as Roland Fryer and Larry Summers, which provides a variety of viewpoints in Economics--Summers was Bill Clinton's economic adviser, and Mankiw was George Bush's, and it's inspiring to see intelligent, well-meaning people debate their different political leanings based on their understanding of their field of economics

    Course highlights:

    The Sections are amazing! Other than the big lectures, most of the classes are conducted in small sections. Section tutors are well prepared to teach, and if you're lucky your tutor will try to make your experience interactive and fun. Tutors are also really patient during office hours, so you can learn economics without feeling the stress of not knowing how the economy works.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read. Reading the textbook really helps to crystallize the understanding for the text, and prepares one for class. The textbook is expensive, and the online software they're using is not cheap either. The class is worth it, though, but you really have to keep in mind the "sunk costs" you'll invest in this class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is designed as an eight-week introduction to the study of economics. Participants will be exposed to the economic way of thinking and learn about the functioning of a modern market economy.

    Course highlights:

    microeconomic analysis including the behavior of consumers and firms. We analyze markets for goods and services and policy choices that affect these markets. The later part of the course moves on to macroeconomic concepts such as national production, employment, inflation and interest rates. We explore models that determine long-run growth and short-term fluctuations in national economies. We then discuss the role of government regulation, monetary policy, and fiscal policy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The course is pretty basic. No need for panicking.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Designed for both potential Economics concentrators and those who plan no further work in the field. The Department of Economics strongly encourages students considering concentration to take the full-year course in their freshman year.

    Course highlights:

    Introduction to economic issues and basic principles and methods of microeconomics: how markets work, market efficiency and market failure, firm and consumer behavior, policy issues such as taxation, international trade, the environment, and the distribution of income.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is basically the foundation for economics, so you've got to take it seriously for the sake of future courses.
