Halfway through my Freshman year, I decided to pursue a minor in Business Administration. In order to do so I had to take two prerequisite classes; one of them was Micro-Economics. Because I had to take this class, I decided to take it as an honors course. This was my first time taking an economics course, the material was difficult at first to understand. Along with the regular course material, I had to read assigned articles that discussed economics in various cultures for honors. This made learning about economics a lot more manageable because I was able to apply the in-class material to real-world situations.
