Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study:Economics, General
Description:Economics is fundamentally about understanding the life choices that individuals make, and how those choices impact the economy. It studies the logic of human choice under conditions of scarcity, and examines the social institutions that determine how scarce resources are used. Economics applies the laws of logic to derive propositions or make predictions regarding how individuals will behave in response to changes in their situations. It provides a theoretical framework to explain choices and behaviour that can also be successfully applied to other areas of study, including politics, law, history, and education. Those interested in a career as a professional economist or who plan to pursue graduate studies in economics should enroll in the B.A. Honours stream. The cooperative education version of the Major and Honours degrees in economics are recommended for students who are interested in integrating their academic program with degree-related work experience.
