The Economics program offers training in core economic theory courses as well as a number of field options. Most students opt for the non-thesis option given that it is the standard in most graduate Economics programs in North America. This option consists of eight half courses and an extended research paper. Many students will take six courses during their first year (three in fall, three in winter); two courses in the fall of the second year and complete their extended paper in the winter of the second year.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    In addition to the general admission requirements for Master programs, the following requirements also apply:
  • An Honours B.A. (Economics) or an equivalent four-year degree with at least second class standing
  • Candidates may be required to make up deficiencies by taking courses in addition to those required for the Master's degree. This will be at the discretion of the Department.
  • * We make every attempt to provide accurate information on prerequisites, programs, and tuition. However, this information is subject to change without notice and we highly recommend that you contact the school to confirm important information before applying.
