ECON 330 - Advanced Labor Economics


Planned Offering: Winter 2017 and alternate years.
Credits: 3

Prerequisites: ECON 101, ECON 203, and instructor consent required. Not open to students with credit for ECON 230. This course is an empirically advanced introduction to fundamental topics in the economic study of labor markets. We focus on labor supply, labor market equilibrium, investments in education, the distribution of labor income, and the effects of discrimination. Each part of the course provides a theoretical treatment of the respective topic followed by coverage of one or more academic research papers on that topic. Compared to most undergraduate labor economics courses, this course adopts a narrower topical focus in order to study, in depth, some primary research from the discipline. Students further develop their own quantitative research skills by writing two empirical papers. Handy.
