Course Objectives: The objective of
courses, The Principles of Microeconomics (EC204), and The
Principles of Macroeconomics (EC205) are four credit hour
courses that provide students with an introduction of
economics. These courses make extensive use of interactive tools and multimedia such as
online tests, quizzes, and articles. In addition, a CD
containing video and sound steps students though each chapter.
Online, students can access sample article write-ups, their grades,
the syllabus, and supplementary articles with questions and answers.
These courses even allow students to chat with other students in
an interactive chat room and participate in an online
discussion group. Students will learn about the time value of
money, consumer decision making, investing in mutual funds and
stocks, unemployment, and many other subjects.
Why Take These Courses?: The flexibility of these courses
is particularly helpful for students who have schedule conflicts
with other courses or job commitments. You access all the materials
and take quizzes and tests online at your convenience (these
courses are completely online so you do not ever need to be on
campus to take these courses).

material. The presentations and supplementary materials
utilize audio, video, and use a question and answer format that makes these
courses interactive and fun.
