Crosslisting: COL 212

This class has two main purposes: first, to introduce students to the subject of finance--especially the stock market--and, second, to explore the connections between finance and the humanities, especially literature, as a means of understanding the crucial role of finance in society. Readings, class discussions set up as structured debates, news articles, video clips, guest speakers, and a group project will together reinforce the students' growing knowledge of this subject.
