Principles of Macroeconomics: This course introduces students to the fundamentals of macroeconomics. Topics progress from the underpinnings of economic thinking with supply and demand analysis to understanding economic data, growth, and the basics of the financial and monetary systems. Finally, the course will address business cycles and aggregate fluctuations in the macroeconomy. By the end of the course students should have a solid understanding of economic concepts including GDP, inflation, unemployment and the ability to use models to explain some macroeconomic fluctuations. Spring 2017 Syllabus

Intermediate Macroeconomics: This course builds on Principles of Macroeconomics and begins with static analysis of the Long-Run Classical Economy in both an open and closed economy context. Next, it introduces dynamic analysis using the Solow Model - an initial model to explain long-run economic growth. Finally, the course addresses business cycle fluctuations by building on the familiar ADAS model from Basic Macroeconomics using the ISLM model. Fall 2016 Syllabus
