    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The material is very theoretical, but the professor made the workload to be bearable. It's an elective you will not feel too heavy taking with another Economics course.

    Course highlights:

    There's a lot of information behind the labor sector that is not covered in Micro Theory. You will learn about productivity, wages, discrimination, and other interesting topics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the slides when available. The textbook problems should also be reviewed in order to pass the class and final.
