fall 2021 course descriptions

MMSS 211-1: Turbo Micro 

A fast-paced mathematical treatment of intermediate microeconomics designed for mathematically sophisticated students.  No previous training in microeconomics is assumed.  Topics covered include consumer and producer behavior in market economies, equilibrium in competitive and monopolistic markets, public goods and externalities, and welfare analysis.

MATH 285-1: Accelerated Mathematics for MMSS

First Year: 1. Linear algebra. 2. Continuation of linear algebra; multivariable differential calculus. 3. Multivariable integral calculus. Prerequisite: first-year standing in MMSS.

MATH 385-1: Probability and Statistics for MMSS

Probability theory and its social science applications. May not receive credit for both 385 and any of 310-1, 311-1, 314, or STAT 320-1, 383. Prerequisite: second-year standing in MMSS.

MMSS 300: Foundatoins of Math Social Science 

Formal methods in Social Science are diverse but all are built on a common foundational set of tools ranging from models of individual decision-making to theories of collective action, including Individual Decision Making, Choice Under Uncertainty, Social Choice and Welfare, Efficiency Concepts, and Dynamic Decision Making.  This course will expose MMSS students to these tools in a mathematically rigorous way in order to prepare them for the advanced Social Science applications of second-year MMSS coursework.

MMSS 398-1: Senior Seminar

Students design and carry out a research project on the topic of their choice,  under the close supervision of a faculty advisor during their final year at Northwestern.
