Capstone course for English minors in the School of Business. Analysis of economic theories as they pertain to literary works. Topics may vary.
By the end of the course, you’ll be able to: • articulate at least one aspect of studying literature that will persuade your most skeptical and quantitatively-minded friends and relatives that it has positive value for understanding economic exchange; • define at least three different ways of evaluating the artistic value of a literary work and connect these to your own writing; • understand how economic systems of value apply to arguments about art; • evaluate literary works and write a critically persuasive essays about their aesthetic and cultural value (or perhaps their lack thereof!); and • convince a peer studying a discipline other than English literature to read your favorite books (regardless of whether the books are deemed high or low art).

This is the only capstone course for Business majors fulfilling their requirement to have a minor outside of the Business School. It is also an advanced course for fulfilling the oral GPAC.

It is too late for the GPAC committee to review and approve this course as having the Oral Communication GPAC attribute. I am hence approving the course, but removing the attribute.
