Current Semester Courses



In spring 2022 I am teaching Quantitative Methods in Economics (300) and The Global Firm: A Calderwood Seminar in Public Writing.
Wait list policy:

  • I admit students to my courses on a space-available basis giving priority to students who have submitted ranked requests, are majors, and then usually (but not always) with respect to seniority. Note: ranked requests can only be submitted during adjustment period.
  • With finance electives, I generally give lower priority to students who have already taken a previous finance course, at Wesleyan or elsewhere, as there is some content overlap between finance courses. 
  • I will inform you via email after the first class meeting if you will be admitted to the course. I keep an active wait list in the event students drop the course in the early part of the drop/add period (up until the 3rd class meeting for classes that meet twice a week and after the first course meeting for classes that meet once a week). However, I will not admit any additional students from the wait list once the class meets for the third time (or second time for once a week courses) regardless of whether any additional spaces open up.
  • Please note: In compliance with University regulations, class attendance will not be considered as part of the “add” admission decision. The only items I use to determine admission is whether a student has filed a formal enrollment request, and, if applicable, how it is ranked.
Pre-requisite overrides policy:
If there is space available in a class during add/drop after accomodating all interested students who meet the pre-reqs, I may consider giving an override. Please note: I’ve given just a handful of overrides to students over the years.
