The University recently announced a new online economics course, Econ IV: Principles of Economics. The course will be available in the summer from June 23 through Aug. 14, and will be considered an equivalent of the introductory economics course, Econ 1. It will be taught by John B. Taylor, a celebrated Econ 1 professor and the director of the Stanford Introductory Economics Center.
The University introduced the online course to meet the needs of students who wished to fulfill requirements but who may not be able to stay on campus for the summer. Econ IV meets all of the same GER and WAYS requirements of Econ 1. Students interested in enrolling in the online summer course can do so through Axess.
