Pre-requisite -
Role and This course teach about the concept and application of microeconomic theory in public
Purposes policy matters. Within this coursestudents are trained to understand the microeconomic
aspects behind the existence of a public policy.There are three major theories of
microeconomics discussed in this course:(1) The theoryunderlying consumerdecision-
making process; (2)The theory underlying the production process and the behavior of
producers; and (3) The Theory of market structure. The topic about market structure will be
discussed more in Microeconomics for Policy 2.

Final Examination

Teaching/Learning Teaching method uses active lecturing and class discussions, in which students achieve
Methodology the study objectives by discussing and completing related problems or cases under the
guidance of lecturer and tutor. The problems and cases are taken from the textbook and
other sources. Students are expected to read required readings for a particular session.
There are several sessions that use collaborative learning and case study.

Individually, each student is required to participate actively in teaching and learning, in
the form:
1. Ask questionsin accordancewith thetopic.
2. Preparingto answerquestions.
3. Discuss issuesrelated to thetopic.
To be eligible, students must read textbooks and other materials provided.
Minimum 80% of Total Lecture:
1. A maximum of 3 (three) times absent, for no reason.
2. Students who came 15 minutes after class begins is considered not present.
