ECON 3230 - Gender Economics

3 Credit(s)

This course seeks to explain the many roles women play in the economy and how those are different (and similar) to the roles played by men. We begin with the important role inclusiveness plays in the economic growth of a nation. We then move to a discussion of the history and present reality of gender bias. This will be followed by a discussion of the theory of economic discrimination, which will then be applied to the discussion of outcomes observed with respect to education, employment, and wages. The course will then discuss “non-market” outcomes related to the economics of the family. Topics included in this section of the course include marriage and divorce, how household tasks are allocated by women and men, and teen pregnancy. (Spring) [Graded (Standard Letter)]
