ECO 350K • Economics Of Education

33410 • Spring 2016
Meets TTH 9:30AM-11:00AM SZB 370

The course will introduce the concept of human capital, and consider the important question of why both individuals and governments invest in education. Using economic principals we will analyse the determinants of human capital. This will cover topics such as, the importance of out of school factors such as family background and age. We then consider in-school determinants of education including class size, peer effects and school types. Going into more detail we go on to discuss the impact of teachers, the methods by which this has been measured and improved. Finally, the course addresses the market for college education, with emphasis on the financing of higher educational systems, and the efficient matching of students to institutions. The course will combine theory with empirical evidence and touch upon current policy issues in education.
