Economics courses are designed to maximize students’ capacity to analyze, interpret, and evaluate economic events, institutions, and processes. Students are expected to learn the basic facts, concepts, and themes of the discipline as they relate to the American economy generally and individual markets for specific goods specifically.

Students are introduced to the elementary methods of economic analysis as a means to analyze and understand economic problems and public policy issues. Students will learn to do elementary economic analysis themselves and to apply what they have learned.

Although the substance of the courses provides a general, but challenging economics education for students, it is primarily intended to provide the basis for their continued academic educations, whatever their major fields of study may be. The courses also provide especially good preparation for academic transfer students who may choose Economics as their major field for their Bachelor’s degree, as well as those who pursue careers in teaching, government service, business management, and law, among others.

The Spanish classes offered at Temple College present the universal standard broadcast Spanish spoken in today’s global community. The emphasis is given to the standard Spanish spoken in our area of the world. Texas is next to Mexico and home to Fort Hood, where many Puerto Ricans and Central Americans are stationed. Students also will learn about several of the cultural groups that speak the language. Each class stresses functional language that can be used in the community or abroad. Although full fluency normally requires years to achieve, specific functional, usable language can be developed from the very beginning through diligent practice. Even a beginning student will be able to help a Spanish speaker fill out a hotel registration form, sign up for school, make an appointment, or give and receive the information needed on a census form.
