Course DescriptionThis course is designed to introduce non-major students to the concepts and issues related to the science of ecology. We begin with two lectures on evolution and natural selection because these ideas are central to all fields of biology, particularly ecology. The rest of the course is divided into three general units: (1) Population ecology: we study different models of population growth and factors that regulate population growth in various organisms, including humans. (2) Community ecology: we study ways in which two or more species interact and apply these ideas to current issues such as invasive species and loss of biodiversity. (3) Ecosystem ecology: we study ecosystem processes such as energy flow and nutrient cycling between various ecosystem components. These are done using a case study such as tall grass prairie ecosystems, fire, and bison grazing. There are no prerequisites for this class and no background in biology is necessary to perform successfully in the course.

Course Description This class examines the aggregate (macro) performance of a market economy comprised of many independent decision-makers - namely households, firms and governments. It explores how we measure overall performance of the economy and the problems that may arise in a market economy, such as inflation and unemployment. It then examines the role of monetary policy in the economy, particularly through the Federal Reserve Bank, by its effect on interest rates, inflation and economic growth, and the role of fiscal policy (for example, government taxation and spending) on macroeconomic performance. Finally, the course examines international economic links between nations, including the role of exchange rates. Students should come away from the class with the ability to understand the economic phenomena we read and hear about everyday, as well as a better ability to judge the economic merits of various proposals by policymakers.
