Economics

Economics deals with any issue arising out of the conflict between the demand for goods and services, and a limited supply of resources to satisfy those demands. Undergraduate training in economics familiarizes students with the discipline of economic thinking, and equips them for intelligent appraisal of contemporary economic problems. Economics offers programs leading to both Hon. BA and Hon. BSc degrees.

  • Economics (specialist, major and minor options)
  • Environmental Economics (minor)

Advice for First Year

Students intending to complete a minor, major or specialist program in economics must take ECO 101H1 + ECO 102H1 and an introductory calculus course. Although ECO 105Y1 is an exclusion to ECO 101H1 + ECO 102H1, it is not intended for students who plan to enrol in an economics program. The choice of first-year math depends on the planned program. MAT133Y1 is suitable for Economics Majors and Minors. Economics Specialists must take at least (MAT135H1+MAT136H1), while students in the Economics and Mathematics specialist must take at least MAT137Y1.

Students intending to complete any of the above programs must take ECO 101H1 + ECO 102H1 and a first-year calculus course. Students interested in Financial Economics should take a minimum of MAT133Y1, but it is strongly recommended to take the higher-level (MAT135H1+MAT136H1) or MAT137Y1. Students pursuing the Economics and Mathematics program must take either MAT137Y1 or MAT157Y1.
