Course Options

Students may participate in this special program under two regimes.

  • Either by enrolling in the three-credit course, ECO 460: Economic Growth & Development [The prerequisite ECO 203: Principles of Micro-can be taken by any student in the fall of 2017 if not before.]
  • Or by enrolling in a one-credit course: Sustainability in Southern India (that will be ‘purpose-built’ for this intersession).

This binary approach makes it possible for students who do not want or need the upper level economics course to participate, at a more affordable price. Students selecting the one-credit option will still participate in all lectures & field trips on site; but they will have smaller program commitments before & after the trip.
