ECON 85 Independent Study in Economics

This course is required of all majors in the Honors Program who do not initiate their honors work in their 40-level course; they will be expected to do the preliminary work on their Honors theses in this course. This course offers an opportunity for a student to do independent work under the direction of a member of the Department. For students who take this course in order to engage in independent study of a topic of interest rather than as a part of honors work, the prerequisite background will consist of all the regularly offered courses in the chosen field of study. Such a student will normally be expected to prepare, prior to the taking of ECON 85, a prospectus and a list of reading pertaining to the study he or she wishes to pursue.


Requires permission of the vice chair and of the department faculty member who will be advising the student.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
