ECON 401 - Practical Training in Economics I
The course is designed for 3rd and 4th year students to equip them with practical tools for their future careers. For those students planning to enter an academic path, the course will involve teaching techniques, teaching in tutorials, discussion and problem hours. For those students planning to enter an applied research career, the course will involve research techniques and statistical databases and practical training.
Each student will be attached to a course and will be under the guidance of a faculty member. The final grade earned from the course will depend on the assessment of the relevant faculty member as well as the assessment of students in the tutorial section that the student is assigned to. There will be two mid-term evaluations; one half way through the semester and one, at the end of the semester.
This course can only be taken once; it is not possible to repeat this course.
