Overview

Honours Bachelor of Arts in Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics - Optional Co-op

Food and Agriculture connect people with the world’s natural resource base and are at the heart of global issues. In this major, students will acquire the analytical and management skills needed to develop the capacity to effectively deal with emerging issues and challenges, such as food, security and sustainability. Building on the understanding of economic theory and applied methods in both the Canadian and world context, a variety of job opportunities arise in industry, government agencies and non-governmental organizations.

Beyond the core offering, the major provides the flexibility for students to pursue thematic areas of study, as well as an opportunity to take additional liberal arts courses. In addition, this major provides excellent background for those students planning to undertake graduate work in food, agricultural or resource economics and other fields of applied economics.

Learn the skills and knowledge you need to deal with emerging issues in food, agriculture and resource management. Use economic theory and applied methods to improve food systems and policy in Canada and internationally. Strengthen your business and economics skills through advanced projects and case-based courses. Specialize in one of four streams: Food and Agribusiness Management; Food Industry Economics and Management; International Development Economics; or Resource Economics.
