Honours Economics and Mathematics (B.A.)


Students who entered this program prior to 2007 may see an Academic Advisor in the Office of the Associate Dean for program requirements.

Admission


Completion of any Level I program with a Grade Point Average of at least 5.0 including MATH 1A03  (or 1X03 ) an average of at least 5.0 in ECON 1B03  and 1BB3  and a grade of at least C+ in each of MATH 1AA3  (or 1XX3 ) and 1B03 . For continuation in the program, see Minimum Requirements for Entering and Continuing in a Program Beyond Level I .

Notes


  1. Alternate admission: For students enrolled in a program beyond Level I, admission to Levels II, III and IV of Honours Economics programs requires an average of at least 5.0 in ECON 2G03 , 2GG3 , 2H03  and 2HH3 , in addition to the required Grade Point Average (GPA) as stated in the Minimum Requirement for Entering and Continuing in a Program Beyond Level I in the Faculty of Social Sciences Academic Regulations. Students enrolled in Levels II, III and IV cannot gain admission to Honours Economics programs by upgrading ECON 1B03  or 1BB3 .
  2. COMMERCE 2FA3  may be substituted for ECON 2I03  and COMMERCE 2QA3  may be substituted for ECON 2B03 .
  3. Students with prior credit in a statistic course recognised as an alternative to ECON 2B03  are exempt from this requirement. Those students can take ECON 3U03  only if they achieved a grade of at least B+ in an alternative statistics course. See ECON 3U03  in the Course Listings section of this Calendar for a list of recognised alternative statistics courses.
  4. Neither ECON 2B03 3WW3  nor 3U03  can be used to satisfy these required units.
