Overview

Bachelor of Arts in Economics

The Department offers core theoretical courses in economic thought, micro economics, macro economics, international trade and finance and monetary theory and monetary institutions. 

As well, there is a wide variety of options in natural resource and environmental economics, labor economics and industrial relations, public finance, and agricultural economics.

Senior courses are relatively small and combine lectures and seminars. 

The emphasis in most courses is on mainstream economics but students are also exposed to the major controversies in economics and alternative perspectives from institutional, Marxian and post-Keynesian economics. 

Discussion and debate are promoted and students are encouraged to challenge the views of faculty members.

Students completing majors in economics are well-equipped to progress to graduate studies in economics, professional schools such as law and city planning and to find employment in both the public and private sectors.

There are 3 options of this program: 3 years duration, 4 years duration and 4 year (Honours).
