    In this course offered by Boston College Experience, economics is a study of human behavior and helps explain many aspects of our everyday life. Students will learn both Microeconomics and Macroeconomics in order to better understand both business and the economy. We will look at factors influencing individuals and businesses then we will look at the economy and address the measures of economic activities, role of the government and its policies, and the effects of those policies.

    The focus of the course will be on applying the principles learned to the world around us. Students will not only apply the tools to the current events and business issues but will be encouraged to think about how these play out in their own lives. This course is a good overview for students who may be interested in taking AP Economics.
