ECON 494 - Economics Capstone


0 Credit Hours
The primary aim of the capstone course is to use economic theory and data analysis to complete an original research project. In this course, students will learn about the process of developing, researching, writing and presenting an economics capstone. In class, students will learn how to decide on an appropriate research topic, formulate hypotheses using economic theory, fit the topic into a broader literature, collect and analyze data and write the capstone paper based on the results from data analysis. At the end of the term, students will present their capstone to the economics faculty throughout the second half of the term. The research paper and the oral presentation of the research will be assessed by the faculty.
