SOSC140 HM - Economic Behaviors


Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Sullivan

Description: This course will examine a sample of human behaviors commonly seen as economic—including gift giving, pricing, and work ethics—from the perspectives of a variety of disciplines outside of economics. We will be particularly interested in cultural, social, and historical factors that influence human economic actions and interactions and will consider works by anthropologists, historians, sociologists, psychologists, artists, literary critics, and others. This course does not require any background in economic theory and is not designed to advance students within the standard micro/macro economic sequence.

HSA Course Area(s): Social Science
