Honours in Economics

Students planning to attend graduate school, and those interested in advanced undergraduate
studies, should enrol in the Honours Programme. Students wishing to pursue Honours should apply to the Department Chair at the end of their second year. Students need an average GPA of 3.0 in their economics courses to enter the Honours Programme, and are expected to maintain that average while in the programme.

For Honours in Economics, the following courses are required
ECON 1006 Introduction to Economics (or ECON 1013 & 1023)
MATH 1013 Introduction to Calculus I
MATH 1023 Introduction to Calculus II

An additional 12 credit hours in economics are required to complete an Honours degree in economics. In addition, Honours students are to present a seminar to senior students and faculty as arranged by the Department. An overall average GPA of 3.0 on the economics courses specified for Honours is required to graduate with Honours. Students who do not fulfill all the requirements for Honours are automatically considered for a Major in Economics.
