Bachelor of Arts (Economics)

Degree Requirements

Total courses: thirty.

(a) ECON-1100, ECON-1110, ECON-2120, ECON-2210, and ECON-2310; and six 2XXX, 3XXX or 4XXX level courses. (With the approval of a program advisor, equivalent statistics courses may be substituted for ECON-2120.)
(b) STAT-2920, or STAT-2910;
(c) eight courses from outside Social Sciences with at least two from Arts/Languages and two from Sciences;
(d) four courses from any area of study including Economics;
(e) six courses from any area of study excluding Economics.

Courses used to calculate the major average are: courses listed under requirement (a), and any courses taken in the major area(s) of study.

RECOMMENDED COURSE SEQUENCING:

Year 1*
Fall: ECON-1100, plus four courses
Winter: ECON-1110, plus four courses

Year 2
Fall: ECON-2210*, ECON-2310, STAT-2920 (or STAT-2910)*, two courses
Winter: ECON-2120, two economics courses, two other courses

Year 3
Fall: two economics courses, three other courses
Winter: two economics courses, three other courses

Notes: STAT-2920 is recommended. If STAT-2920 is chosen instead of STAT-2910, MATH-1730 is required and should be taken in Year 1. A student who had successfully completed ECON-1100 could take ECON-2210 in the Winter of Year 1, rather than in Winter of Year 2.

Bachelor of Arts (Honours Economics)

Degree Requirements

Total courses: forty.

(a) ECON-1100, ECON-1110, ECON-2120 (or STAT-2950), ECON-2210, ECON-2220, ECON-2310, ECON-2320, ECON-3060, ECON-3130, ECON-4140, ECON-4230, ECON-4330, ECON-4070 and seven additional courses, at least five of which have to be at the 3XXX or 4XXX level.
(b) MATH-1250 (or MATH-1260 ), MATH-1720 (or MATH-1760), and either STAT-2910 or STAT-2920 (if taking STAT-2920, the student must take MATH-1730 as a prerequisite for STAT-2920).
(c) seventeen courses from any area of study, of which a maximum of two may be from Economics.

Courses used to calculate the major average are: courses listed under requirement (a), and any courses taken in the major area(s) of study.

RECOMMENDED COURSE SEQUENCING:

Year 1*
Fall: ECON-1100, MATH-1720 (or MATH-1760), MATH-1250 (or MATH-1260), plus two courses
Winter: ECON-1110, MATH-1730* (or other course), plus three courses

Year 2
Fall: ECON-2210*, ECON-2310, STAT-2920 (or STAT-2910)*, plus two courses

Notes: STAT-2920 is recommended. If STAT-2920 is chosen instead of STAT-2910, MATH-1730 is required and should be taken in Year 1. A student who had successfully completed ECON-1100 could take ECON-2210 in the Winter of Year 1, rather than in Winter of Year 2. Also, conditional on satisfying the prerequisites, a student could move ECON-3130 and ECON-4140 from the fourth year to the third year.
