The purpose of this course is to provide you with a basic understanding of the principles of microeconomics. At its core, the study of economics deals with the choices and decisions that have to be made in order to manage scarce resources available to us. Microeconomics is the branch of economics that pertains to decisions made at the individual level, i.e. by individual consumers or individual firms after evaluating resources, costs, and tradeoffs. The economy is referred to as the marketplace or system in which these choices interact with one another. In this course, you will learn how and why these decisions are made and how they affect one another in the economy. ECN has many concepts involved so have a look at few of them by clicking here.

6) ART 110 – Drawing as Seeing and Thinking

This course seeks to immerse students from a broad range of art and non-art disciplines in the history and practice of drawing. Drawing is presented as a distinct continuum, one that finds connections between cultures, and linkages between the historical and the contemporary. During the course, students will have an opportunity to consider and analyze drawing in its most expanded form: as a primary tool of communication and creative problem solving, as the movement, as a sensory experience, and as its own unique method of cognition.

Above listed are the courses at ASU which are thought to be difficult as compared to other courses. Some might find these courses easy and some may find it either way but make sure to see the concepts involved in these courses before registering in one.
