Description

This course introduces students to topics in the politics of economic development. We want to better understand (1) how political institutions influence economic outcomes and (2) why particular political and economic institutions—whether effective or not—emerge and persist over time. The readings will focus on academic works in economics, history, political science, and sociology.

Course Requirements:

Testing for this course will be asynchronous and will consist of short answer and essay questions that will be submitted via Canvas during a designated time frame.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for students majoring in International Studies and upper division students. It welcomes entirely online participation. No part of this course requires you to be on campus or present in-person.

Class Format:

As a DC (Distance due to COVID) course, all aspects of this course will be fully compatible with remote online learning. Lectures to be synchronous and streamed live every Monday and Wednesday from 10:00AM - 11:30AM.
