This course is an introduction to applied econometric techniques beyond Ordinary Least Squares (OLS). Many of the questions that arise in economics cannot be studied using linear estimation methods. Nonlinear estimation techniques will be presented with emphasis on interesting economic questions that can be analyzed using these methods.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
