Both classes are set up in a peer-facilitated teaching model where peer educators use a hands-on approach to give students a better understanding of finance. The courses include Consumer Science 111 and 321. CS 111 is recommended for freshmen and sophomore students and teaches topics that cover how to manage a budget plan. CS 321 discusses topics such as auto insurance and 401ks and is geared towards upperclassmen. UW-Madison senior Alaina Legler is a retail major in SoHE and section leader for the program.
