The Department of Economics offers graduate instruction leading to MA and PhD degrees. Enrolment is limited in order to sustain the flexibility and other advantages of a small graduate program and to tailor the program to individual needs. Students in the program come from Canada and around the world. Departmental funding policies are geared to the maintenance of a broad, international student base.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    A candidate must normally complete an M.A. degree before entering the Ph.D. program, except as follows:
  • applicants for admission to the Ph.D. program must have completed the entrance requirements and the program requirements of an M.A. degree in Economics or in Agricultural Economics equivalent to that awarded by the University of Manitoba. A thesis-based Master’s is not required.
  • In exceptional cases, applications to either stream may be considered from students who have completed an Honours degree in Economics equivalent to that awarded by the University of Manitoba. In such cases, the applicant will be required to fulfill, in addition to the requirements below, all coursework requirements for the non-thesis M.A. degree.
