Inhalt: This course gives an orientation for Economics Majors. It starts with a brief overview over the course of studies, studying abroad, Master and PhD in Economics, potential jobs etc. We will further discuss scientific standards and work in the field of economics, which include structure of papers, citation styles, literature search, publication outlets and publication processes. To get an impression about the diversity of economic research topics, we will have a short look at Nobel prize winners and other prominent researchers in economics as well as class room discussions. The second part of the course is devoted to an introduction into the Statistical Software package Stata, which will also be used in the empirical research projects in the Economics Major. In addition to class room attendance, students are expected to do work at home such as reading the supplied literature and materials, watching the video links, looking for topics, and working with Stata.
