Top AEC 512 MICROECONOMIC THEORY I (4)  Offered in current or future terms
Fundamental topics in microeconomic theory. Topics include utility maximization and consumer demand, profit maximization and the theory of the firm, and labor and capital markets. PREREQS: AREC 312 and MTH 252 or equivalent.

Top AEC 513 MICROECONOMIC THEORY II (4)  Offered in current or future terms
Emphasizes principles for microeconomic theory at the master's level. Builds upon the foundations covered in AEC 512, and extends the theory and principles to cover uncertainty, game theory, competitive market equilibrium and welfare analysis, imperfect competition, and market failures. Primary emphasis is on understanding microeconomic theory and the underlying assumptions, and how it is applied to real world settings. PREREQS: AEC 512

Top AEC 515 MACROECONOMIC THEORY (4) 
Macroeconomic theory and policy that covers the historical foundations and evolution of modern macroeconomic thought. Topics include the equilibrium determination of output, employment, prices, wages, and interest rates; the causes and consequences of economic fluctuations; monetary and fiscal policies; micro-foundations; and the role of expectations. PREREQS: ECON 315 and MTH 251 or equivalent.

Top AEC 523 PRELIMINARIES FOR QUANTITATIVE METHODS (4) 
Examines mathematical and statistical topics essential for subsequent courses in graduate-level econometric analysis and quantitative methods. The course focuses on matrix algebra, probability and distribution theory (emphasizing joint and conditional distributions), statistical inference, properties of estimators, and iterative methods for solving non-linear systems. PREREQS: (ST 351 or ST 352 or ECON 424 or ECON 524) and MTH 253

Top AEC 525 APPLIED ECONOMETRICS (4)  Offered in current or future terms
General principles of applied econometric research are emphasized, including model building, data analysis, hypothesis testing, and evaluation and interpretation of results. A variety of estimators are applied to real data, including least squares, panel data, simultaneous equations, discrete choice, and limited dependent variable models.

Top AEC 599 SPECIAL TOPICS (0-16) 
Various topics in applied economics of special and current interest not covered in other courses. This course is repeatable for a maximum of 16 credits.

Top AEC 611 ADVANCED MICROECONOMIC THEORY I (4)  Offered in current or future terms
A rigorous development of the theory of consumption and production, with emphasis on duality. PREREQS: (AEC 512 and AEC 513) and MTH 254 or equivalent.

Top AEC 612 ADVANCED MICROECONOMIC THEORY II (4)  Offered in current or future terms
A rigorous extension of the theory of the consumer and firm to aggregate and heterogeneous populations, decision making under uncertainty, and related game theory concepts. PREREQS: AEC 611

Top AEC 613 ADVANCED MICROECONOMIC THEORY III (4)  Offered in current or future terms
A rigorous development of the theory of competitive equilibrium, market power, public goods, and information. PREREQS: AEC 612

Top AEC 615 ADVANCED MACROECONOMIC THEORY (4) 
Introduction to modern macroeconomic theory on economic growth and fluctuations, including a review of Keynesian theory, optimal control theory and dynamic programming, exogenous and endogenous growth models, government budget deficit and debt, and unemployment theories. PREREQS: Intermediate macroeconomics or equivalent.

Top AEC 625 ADVANCED ECONOMETRICS I (4)  Offered in current or future terms
Emphasizes basic theory underlying the main types of estimators used in econometrics, as well as their application in empirical research. Includes derivation, properties, and application of ordinary and generalized method of moments, maximum likelihood, and ordinary and generalized least squares estimators, statistical inference and hypothesis testing, and model building and specification analysis. PREREQS: AEC 523

Top AEC 626 ADVANCED ECONOMETRICS II (4)  Offered in current or future terms
