This course covers the basic machine learning algorithms and practices. The algorithms in the lectures include linear classification, linear regression, decision trees, support vector machines, multilayer perceptrons, and convolutional neural networks, and related python pratices are also provided. It is expected for students to have basic knowledge on calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics, and python literacy.
CHS7004 Thesis writing in humanities and social sciences using Python 3 6 Major Bachelor/Master/Doctor Challenge Semester Korean Yes
This course is to write a thesis in humanities and social science field using Python. This course is for writing thesis using big data for research in the humanities and social sciences. Basically, students will learn how to write a thesis, and implement a program in Python as a research methodology for thesis. Students will learn how to write thesis using Python, which is the most suitable for processing humanities and social science related materials among programming languages ​​and has excellent data visualization. Basic research methodology for thesis writing will be covered first as theoretical lectures. Methodology for selection of topics will be discussed also. Once a topic is selected, a lecture on how to organize related research will be conducted. In the next step, students learn how to write necessary content according to the research methodology. Then how to suggest further discussion along with how to organize bibliography to complete a theoretical approach. The basic Python grammar is covered for data analysis using Python, and the process for input data processing is conducted. After learning how to install and use the required Python package in each research field, the actual data processing will be practiced. To prepare for the joint research, learn how to use the jupyter notebook as the basic environment. Learn how to use matplolib for data visualization and how to use pandas for big data processing.
ECO2006 Economic History 3 6 Major Bachelor 2-3 Economics Korean Yes
A survey of European and Asian economic history. Representative topics considered are the ancient economy, the medieval economy, the period of commercial capitalism, and the industrial revolution in Western Europe. The course extends coverage to the modern economic histories of Asian countries.

Review of economic development in Europe from ancient times to the present. Topics include capitalism in industrial revolution, changes in agricultural structures, growing importance of commerce in the 19th Century, and the two world wars and their economic consequences. Topics may also include modern issues such as the importance of investment, technological change and trade as sources of growth; the development of trading blocks; the retardation problems which developed in both systems in the 1970s; the collapse of the CMEA economies; the economic development of the European Union; the economic performance of European economies in the 1990s.
ECO3011 Monetary Policy 3 6 Major Bachelor 3-4 Economics English,Korean Yes
Study of money, credit, and liquidity as related to income, employment, and prices. Special attention is paid to the study of goals and effectiveness of monetary and banking policies.
ECO3016 Korean Economy 3 6 Major Bachelor 3-4 Economics Korean Yes
This course is in the first place, designed to clarify the characteristics of the development process of the Korean Economy. In so doing, the course is devided post-world war II period into the four different time span ; inter-war period(1945-193), post-Korean war period(1953-1960), economic-development-plan period, and the civil gov't period(1993- ). For those periods, issues such as sources of economic development, structural change, inflation and unemployment, and income distribution are discussed.
ECO3019 Special Topics in Economics 3 6 Major Bachelor 3-4 Economics - No
Recent research findings or some special topics will be discussed in depth. Topics may vary depending upon the instructor. Class will be conducted by means of class lectures and student presentations.
ECO3029 Law and Economics 3 6 Major Bachelor 2-4 Economics Korean Yes
The field of law and economics can be shortly summarized as a systematic inquiry about three elements: law, ordinary people, and the market outcome. Specifically, the field of law and economics recognizes as the 'ordinary (rational) people all the market participants including law makers and law enforcers. Only under these presumptions, one can most precisely predict the economic effects of any law or a piece of legislation. Therefore, law and economics, among many other fields in economics, is one of the fields most seriously devoted to accurately explaining the reality as it is. This course starts with the so-called 'Coase Theorem', which is a critical proposition generally evaluated to have triggered this whole field by numerous scholars. After probing into the Coase Theorem sufficiently, the students are supposed to start investigating various economic effects of some major substantive laws, including their other properties such as fairness, justice, or equality. The major substantive laws consist of property law, accident law, contract law, and the constitution. We firstly examine the basic structures of these laws, and subsequently go through the economic properties of main doctrines within such substantive laws. Furthermore, the class also emphasizes how these doctrines are (and were) actually implemented and enforced by the ordinary people in the real world.
ECO4001 Macroeconomics Ι 3 6 Major Bachelor/Master 3-4
Economics Korean,Korean Yes
Based on both static and dynamic analysis of macroeconomics, this course covers research-oriented contents of macroeconomic models, monetary economy, micro foundations of private sectors, macroeconomic policy, and new macroeconomic theory developed recently.
ECO4002 Microeconomics Ι 3 6 Major Bachelor/Master 3-4
Economics English,Korean Yes
The course is on the basic price theory. It strongly emphasizes both formulation and solving of mathematical models and development of economic intuitions. The topics include consumer and producer behavior, theory of competitive and noncompetitive markets, and welfare economics. The course will cover both partial and general equilibrium models.
ECO4005 Computational Economics 3 8 Major Bachelor/Master 1-2 Economics - No
In modern economics and finance, models have become increasingly more sophisticated. The luxury of working with analytically tractable models often come at the cost of restrictive assumptions. In order to explore new insights and generalize beyond analytical models, numerical analyses is typically needed. Demand for students well-equipped with skills in computational analysis is also on the rise in the global marketplace. In this course we introduce economics and finance students to the basics of numerical analysis and methods. Equal emphasis is placed on the underlying theories of numerical analysis and on the resulting practical computational methods. To illustrate the applicability of these methods, we will cover a reasonably wide range of examples from economics and finance.
ECO4006 Econometrics Ι 3 6 Major Bachelor/Master 1-4 Economics Korean Yes
This course is intended to provide a basic knowledge of econometric theory relevant for carrying out empirical works in economics. Course starts by reviewing some concepts of linear algebra, probability theories, and statistical theories. It proceeds to classical linear model and its asymptotic theory, inferences. Estimation and testing methods based on least squares, weighted least squares, maximum likelihood, instrumental variables will be discussed.
ECO4007 Empirical Strategies in Applied Microeconomics 3 6 Major Bachelor/Master 1-4 Economics Korean Yes
This course introduces students to a range of empirical identification strategies used to evaluate impacts of policy interventions in applied microeconomics. The goal of this course is three fold, to enable students (1) to understand commonly used empirical strategies and econometric techniques on impact evaluation and policy analysis, such as instrumental variables estimation, difference in differences, panel data methods, matching estimators, and regression discontinuity design; (2) to assess the appropriateness of different techniques for applied microeconomic examples, particularly in development economics, urban and regional economics; and (3) to familiarize with how to use STATA to conduct empirical work using these techniques.
ECO7001 Mathematical Statistics 3 6 Major Bachelor/Master/Doctor 3-4
Economics Korean Yes
