Course Credit: 1

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT This course will introduce students to the various economic schools of thought concerning the process of economic development. Traditionally economic development has been associated with increasing GDP per capita but this vision has broadened to incorporate, marxists, humanists, gender-aware economists, environmentalists, economic geographers, as well as mainstream neo-classical economists. A political economy approach that incorporates political, social, as well as economic factors affecting development will be the main focus of the course. Prerequisite(s): Take ECON-10100 Annually.
