Financial Literacy for Life is a unique course that introduces students to the importance of understanding the financial landscape around them. For instance, how much does their credit card debt really cost them? Why is it so important to save? How do you stay out of financial trouble? Just as important, this course addresses key issues related to why students should be aware of the financial and economic events surrounding them, from the personal implications of a housing bubble, to the strength of their local economy and access to jobs!
Macroeconomics and Microeconomics are offered every semester. GCCC also offers Macroeconomics during the summer, an excellent way to pick up some credits if you are attending another school and want to save some money!
Also offered on request is Topics in Economics. This provides a unique way to earn college credit while you are learning about a particular aspect of economics. The Topics class can be offered in 1, 2, or 3 credit hour increments. For details contact the Chip Marcy, GCCC economics instructor.
