Directed Readings in Economics 1

This course will enable students at Honours level to undertake independent study in an area of Economics where no Honours course is offered at a level appropriate to the student’s background. In some cases, this independent study will take the form of a supervised programme for directed readings (for example, as might be offered by a visiting Erskine Fellow). In most cases, however, the independent study will take the form of taking an augmented 300 level course that the student was unable to take during his or her final undergraduate year, but with additional material and assessment to make the level of the material appropriate to Honours.  

The availability of a 300-level course as an augmented Honours course is at the discretion of the 300-level course lecturer.

NOTE: Students will only be allowed to take two out of ECON610, 613, 663 and 664.
