DO NOT TAKE THIS COURSE UNLESS UR ECON MAJOR. NOT A BIRD COURSE. WILL TAKE A LOT OF TIME to read textbook. If you prof is Horatiu A. Rus DO NOT take it with him. He does not do M/C, it is written short answer midterms and written assignments.

Depends on the prof. When I took it it was two midterms and a final, each having multiple choice and long answer. The textbook for the course "International Economics" is actually very well written so I hardly went to class and still pulled off an A.
