Overview

Bachelor of Arts in Economics

Economics at Nipissing will give you the theories and tools you need to understand how the world works. 

Nipissing's small group of enthusiastic and dedicated faculty focus on the Canadian context and Canada’s role in the global economy. 

They cover the core areas of Economics and delve into critical areas such as public policy, money and banking, the labour market, international trade, international finance, and economic development. 

They discuss important issues such as poverty, inequality, climate change, trade agreements, monetary policy, fiscal policy, and immigration. 

Throughout your studies, you will be faced with critical questions, such as:

  • What is the role of the government in the economy?
  • Are people on average rational economic agents?
  • Why do some countries lag behind others in terms of economic development, and how can they catch up? 

The economic knowledge, research expertise, and analytical skills you will acquire will set you up for success as you pursue your long-term goals. 

In upper years, special topics courses are offered, and the topics will change depending on the professor's research area. 

These courses take an in-depth look at a particular area—for example, income inequality, immigration and human trafficking, tourism and sustainability were recent choices. 

Upper year students have opportunities to gain valuable work experience through:

  • Teaching assistantships
  • Research assistantships 
  • Placements and Internships
