Course Content ECON Major
The program leading to the Bachelors degree in Economics combines training in technical economics with opportunities for a broad and balanced undergraduate education. The program aims to give the students a solid grounding in modern economic theory and accompanying skills necessary for independent and critical thinking which will allow them to acquire an understanding of the Turkish and the world economy.
The aim is achieved through a flexible curriculum which is structured to provide the basic social science and quantitative toolbox necessary for all economists in the first two years, followed by a student-tailored curriculum in the last two years during which the students choose a track of study they prefer to complete under economics. These tracks cover all general economics fields including Academics Economics Track which aims to prepare students for a highly quantitative graduate study, Macroeconomics Track which emphasizes topics about the workings of the macroeconomy such as monetary and international economics, Microeconomics Track which focuses on the decision making of individuals and firms in depth, Managerial Economics Track which captures the synergy issues between management and economics, and finally a General Economics Track which allows the students to explore cross tracks during their studies. All of these general tracks are supported by a range of free electives allowing students to becoming well-rounded social scientists and furthermore university graduates.
The normal course load over four years is 45 courses, 33 of which are compulsory, including the 6 courses that differ across tracks, and 16 of which are elective.
The Minor program in Economics is offered to students who are interested in economics but hold primary interests in other fields. Economics is the study of the allocation of resources and provides an understanding of a very wide range of issues that one faces both in their daily personal operations and in their careers. By arming the students with the theoretical toolkit as well as the basics of empirical analysis, and allowing the application of this expanded toolbox in a field elective course, the Minor program in Economics promotes the intellectual growth of the individual student and contributes to them becoming better citizens as well as better professionals.
The minor is not only useful for students in fields other than economics that may wish to continue their education with a graduate degree in economics but also for those who wish to prepare for a MBA, graduate studies in other social sciences including law, international relations, public policy and finally in quantitative analysis.
