Admission


Enrollment in this program is limited and possession of the published minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Selection is based on academic achievement, completion of any Level I program with a Grade Point Average of at least 5.0, including an average of at least 5.0 in ECON 1B03  (or 1BX3) and 1BB3  (or 1BA3), and a weighted average of at least 5.0 in ECON 1B03  (or 1BX3), ECON 1BB3  (or 1BA3); MATH 1A03, 1AA3, and 1B03, and an average of at least 7.0 in  COMPSCI 1JC3  and 1MD3 .

Notes


  1. Alternate admission requirements:
    1. ​For students enrolled in Level II or III of BA Economics, admission to Levels II, III and IV of Honours Economics programs requires a minimum GPA of 5.0 and an average of at least 5.0 in ECON 2Z03 , 2ZZ3 , (or 2G03, 2GG3), 2H03  and 2HH3 . Students enrolled in Levels II or III of BA Economics cannot gain admission to Honours Economics programs by upgrading ECON 1B03  (or 1BX3) or 1BB3  (or 1BA3).
    2. For students in another program beyond Level I, admission to Levels II, III and IV of Honours Economics programs normally requires a minimum GPA of 5.0 and an average of at least 5.0 in ECON 2Z03 , 2ZZ3 , (or 2G03, 2GG3), 2H03  and 2HH3 . Students cannot gain admission to Honours Economics programs by upgrading ECON 1B03  (or 1BX3) or 1BB3  (or 1BA3). However, if a student enrolled in Level II or above of another program has a minimum GPA of 5.0 and has completed ECON 1B03  and 1BB3  with an average of at least 5.0 on their first attempt, they will be considered admissible.
  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 statistics course recognized as an alternative to ECON 2B03  can take ECON 3EE3  (formerly 3U03) only if they achieved a grade of at least B+ in an alternative statistics course. There is no such grade requirement for ECON 3E03  (formerly 3WW3). See ECON 3EE3  (formerly 3U03) in the Course Listings section of this Calendar for a list of recognized alternative statistics courses.
  4. Seats in the required Level 1 Computer Science courses are limited and will be allocated by the Economics Department.
