Teaching

My teaching interests reflect my research interests.  Focusing on issues related to my research allows me to more easily present material enthusiastically and offers students special insight to subject material. Teaching principles courses is also rewarding because it gives me the opportunity to excite students about economics and introduce them to new ways of thinking about the world.  I currently teach principles of macroeconomics, natural resource economics, and research methods.

Courses: Principles of Macroeconomics, Intermediate Macroeconomics, Seminar in Economic Research , Environmental & Natural Resource Economics, Development Economics

 
Professor James gives amazing lectures and turns complex concepts into simple, easy-to-understand situations. He has a sense of humor that brings light into his lectures as well. This class is test-heavy so be prepared to study! Great professor, would definitely take again.
