Program overview

As an economics student you will gain insight into the long-term effects of policy on communities by studying: Resource Allocation Current Policy Debates Statistics Economic Theory Incentives Econometrics Decision-Making You will also gain a marketable edge through field and speciality courses focused on labour, natural resources and industrial organisation. The natural ebb and flow of the economy means that economics is a changing and dynamic field. Our continually updated course content reflects new theories, information and current events impacting the Economics field. Mathematics is a large component of many of our Economics courses; therefore, our recommendation is that you have some knowledge and skill in the area. Our small class sizes facilitate individual attention from professors and a student-centred learning environment conducive to exploring new ways of thinking. Our core faculty members are leaders in their field and active researchers on an international scale. Each year we offer special topics courses that coincide with the needs and interests of both our students and our faculty. These courses provide learning and research opportunities unique to our institution. We offer a Natural Resource Economics course that is very popular among our Economics and Environmental Studies students, as well as those interested in pursuing a Law degree. This course examines the following topics: Renewable and non-renewable resources Theory of resource exhaustion Scarcity indicators Forests and fisheries management Resource taxation Canadian economy We offer the option to combine your Economics degree with studies in Mathematics, Political Science or Business Administration.
