The Personal Finance course introduces students to strategies and practices that empower them to manage their money wisely. Students first perform a self-analysis to discover their money personality. A study of good consumer habits includes a comparison of renting and buying. Students learn the steps to building wealth, including building an emergency fund, evaluating and embracing risk when investing, and using credit sparingly and wisely. A survey of consumer rights accompanies the steps recommended to protect one’s personal information. Students survey types of insurance and evaluate the role of each in limiting personal financial risk. The course concludes with an entire Unit dedicated to evaluating higher education opportunities, costs, and funding.
