The purpose of this course is to develop critical thinking in the study of economic theories from pre-Classical to 21st century developments in economic thought. The perspective of the course is multi-disciplinary, in line with the objectives of the integrative educational experience. Students are required to do two writing assignments that integrate prior learning into the analysis of the economic theories covered in the course and to present these projects in both poster session and PowerPoint formats. In addition, students will write a reflective essay exploring the role of General Education courses in helping to understand and analyze critically the material in this course and/or in the Economics major as a whole. Satisfies the Integrative Experience requirement for BA-Econ majors.
