Senior Project in Economics - ECN 451

Students will develop a research proposal outlining the different aspects of the planned work. The proposal must be approved by the supervisor before the planned work for the project can be undertaken. The course aims at enhancing the students’ capacity to plan independent research and to communicate this in a research proposal, a final project, and a presentation in front of a jury. Students in this course are introduced to research in a broad area of economics. Since this is a senior standing course, it is designed to apply basic microeconomics or macroeconomics theory developed in introductory and intermediate theory courses to the analysis of contemporary policy issues. Students will learn in this course to apply effective writing and oral communication skills to the analysis of international or national economic problems. Prerequisite: Senior Standing.
