Course Overview

Personal Finance

Do you ever think about the type of life you want for yourself today and in the future?  Do you consider the impact that your money management skills can have on your present and future lifestyles? If you created a list of everything you did today most items on that list would involve money. Money is an important part of daily life, and when managed responsibly, can contribute to your sense of wellbeing.  Your financial well being depends in large part on the choices you make. Wise decisions about earning, saving, borrowing and investing will enable you to attain your personal goals while enjoying a comfortable lifestyle. This course is designed to help you develop the skills, knowledge, and resources to effectively manage your money. Themes that run throughout this course involve how you handle your money both as an individual and as a member of a larger community (your school, city, state, etc.). All of us receive benefits, both financial and nonfinancial, from the communities in which we live. And, we also give back to our communities in many ways. The lessons in this course will highlight both individual decisions and the value of being a part of a community.
