In-class examinations with problems, proofs and reflective questions covering modules 2-3, 4 and 5 respectively.
In-class examinations with problems, proofs and reflective questions covering the entire course.
A paper of around 3,000 words on either economic history or mathematical/statistical methods relevant to macroeconomics. The paper would have to be based on graduate-level texts, monographs and journal articles but should show the students’ ability to select material and synthesize and apply information from different sources.
