Course concepts illustrated with examples drawn from across the social sciences. Prerequisite: ISECON 100. Spring, odd years. PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE TITLE: Limit the course title to 30 characters, including spaces. If more characters are absolutely necessary for clarity, the sponsor should submit an abbreviated title to assure an intelligible abbreviated title of choice (for use in student information system, on transcripts, etc.). PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE DESCRIPTION: Limit the Course Description to 50 words, not including prerequisites. Prerequisites should be clear and specific, e.g., as courses (e.g., ENG 101) or number of credits required. Finally, specify semester(s) the course will be offered. LEARNING OUTCOMES: State knowledge and/or skills students will be expected to demonstrate upon completion of this course. For more information, see Guidelines for Developing Program Objectives, Course Objectives, and Learning Outcomes: http://www.keene.edu/senate/proposals/help/Writing4.cfm . RATIONALE: Explain why this change is being made. Address the connection with institutional mission, and/or department, program, and course objectives. A proposal has been submitted to the ISP Committee to convert this course into IIECON 310 (Game Theory). With the acceptance of the ISP course, this course will no longer be offered. RESOURCES: For course proposals, include the name of the faculty member(s) who will be teaching this course, whether tenure-track, full-time, or adjunct. Indicate whether additional staffing, facilities, and/or equipment will be required. Also, consider the long-term impact of adding a course or altering a program. When a proposal has staffing, space or monetary implications, the VPAA must be consulted and his or her comments should be included in this section. What additional library resources will be required? Has the library been consulted to determine the adequacy of library holdings or to estimate the cost to improve these sufficiently? ADVISORY OPINIONS: List the names of affected departments and include department responses. Advisory opinions are required whenever a proposal affects the curricula of other programs. A proposal must list all affected departments. An Advisory Opinion must be solicited at least two weeks prior to delivery of the proposal to the DCC. Affected departments have two weeks to respond to the request for an Advisory Opinion. Responses should be attached to the proposal. In the event that affected departments do not respond, evidence of the request for an Advisory Opinion from non-respondents must be provided. If a proposal affects a curriculum in a division other than that of the sponsor, each relevant department and the DCC in that division must review and approve the proposal as well. (The electronic curriculum review process tracks votes, advisory opinions and comments as required at each stage of the review.) Updated 14 May 2004.
