Quarter: Fall 2018
Grade: A

Professor Osei is really engaging and she genuinely cares so much about her students. I'm so glad I took this class with her because not only is the class super interesting but she also did a great job teaching it.

There's a midterm, final, and case study but all were relatively manageable. There's no math in this class at all except maybe a few very simple equations so that was definitely a plus. If you're interested in Economic development, international trade, and globalization this is a perfect Econ elective to take.

You can't deny that the professor is a sweet person that cares about student learning. If you care about the subject her lectures might be interesting to you because she often describes case studies that aren't in the book or shows us videos (none of which are on either midterm or final exam). If you don't care about the subject just skip lecture and read the textbook. She doesn't add anything to the lectures that are graded so if all you care about are the grades then yeah feel free to skip. The only thing to worry about in this class is the paper, which I procrastinated on... hence my B+ in the class...

Professor Osei is one of the only Econ teachers I like to recommend because she is an excellent lecturer and doesn't drown students in the material to review. I think her whole approach is to keep it light and keep it simple enough to be memorable. Her midterm covered some early chapters, and then the final was more in detail with two chapters. There is always a case study paper that needs to be submitted and is graded by a doctorate student--which you can't ask for feedback.

Overall, the class is great to take as an elective, and the professor is there for support if you ask for it. The paper is somewhat tedious, but it shouldn't be a problem for people who start early. Work hard for the midterm and case study. Also, tattoo the two chapters for the final on your eyelids preferably.

Check out her Labor Econ (Econ 150) class! It's about the same style for both classes.
