|Description:||Economists are central players in setting government policy — from social programs to economic development. In the private sector, they contribute to market research for new products, evaluate the impact of mergers, and assess tax policy. If you’re interested in human resources, the environment, international development, international financial markets, or money and banking, you might consider a major in Economics.
At Saint Mary’s, you can choose to pursue a major or honours in Economics within a Bachelor of Commerce or a Bachelor of Arts degree. There is a student-led tutorial service throughout the academic year, open to students in any Economics class. A co-op option is available with federal and provincial departments and agencies, as well as various financial institutions. Economics students at Saint Mary’s also have many opportunities for academic exchange, including Europe, Asia, South America, and Africa.
