One goal of this class is for students to become more “economically literate”, meaning you should be
able to read, understand, and analyze news articles written on macroeconomic issues. Additionally, one
goal of the Chowan University general education program is for students “to demonstrate effective
conveying and receiving of information”, and students completing a degree in Business Administration
will be able to “communicate effectively, both in writing and orally.” To that end, students are expected
to complete a written article summary.
