PADM 5213 - Microeconomics for Public Affairs


     
Summer. 2 credits. Letter grades only (no audit).

A. Mathios, N. Sanders.

The primary learning goals of this course are (1) to understand the core concepts of microeconomics and (2) to develop analytical/problem-solving skills. This course differs from typical intermediate-level microeconomic courses in that there will be more emphasis on the role of policy and the public sector in the economy, although understanding the role and effectiveness of markets will remain central.

Outcome 1: Students will apply the basic principles of microeconomics to public policy challenges.

Outcome 2: Students will demonstrate analytical/problem solving skills using tools of microeconomic analysis.
