Department Notes

  1. Not all the Economics courses listed in this Calendar are taught every year. Students are advised to consult the timetable published by the Office of the Registrar, or the Department website for information on current offerings.
  2. Students with credit in ECON 2X03  who transfer into Economics from other programs may substitute ECON 2X03  for ECON 2G03 .
  3. Students who complete ECON 2I03  are well placed to enrol in the Canadian Securities Course (a correspondence course operated by the Canadian Securities Institute which represents the licensing requirement for individuals training to become investment advisors).
  4. Students interested in an M.A. in Economics should consider the Honours Economics (Specialist Option). Also note that some, but not all, graduate programs in Economics require ECON 3G03 , 4T03  and 4TT3 .  For this reason, students interested in an M.A. in Economics are advised to consult a departmental advisor for more detailed information.
  5. MATH 1M03  is required for any student planning to transfer into Commerce and strongly recommended for any student with a minor in Business or Finance. MATH 1M03  is required for ECON 3G03  and is strongly recommended for students planning any graduate study in economics.
