There is no required textbook. The Canvas site will include readings.
The following 2 books will be useful and are available from the library. I DON'T recommend purchasing them.
Appleyard, Dennis and Field, Alfred "International Economics". Any recent edition, as the book does not change much between editions.
Mankiw Macroeconomics - Also any recent edition for the same reasons. This is a different book from his Introduction to Economics text.
There are no participation requirements for the course. But generally students who attend either the face to face or online tutorials do better than those who do not.
Required IT skills
COVID induced practice in spending long hours in from of a screen
Work placement, internships or practicums
