OverviewThe first half of the module provides an introduction to international trade theory, which uses the standard tools of microeconomics to analyse economic interactions between countries. The subject asks questions such as: what determines the level and composition of trade between countries? What are the effects of trade on consumer welfare and income distribution? What are the effects of tariffs, quotas, and other trade policies? What are the causes and consequences of migration and foreign direct investment?
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
