|Description:||Economics is where business, applied mathematics, and human behavior meet. Studying it requires not only an analytical mind, but also curiosity about contemporary events and society as a whole. Economic models are used to examine choice in all forms of social interactions-including but not limited to business, politics, international relations, workplace, family, schools, and criminal activities. In sum, economics provides one set of tools that you can use to analyze, explain, and predict human interaction in virtually any situation. Studying economics provides you with the analytical and critical thinking skills to understand all kinds of choice decisions and to learn more about the world in which you live.
The Honours program is more intensive and employs more rigorous analyses with the aim of preparing students for graduate studies in Economics. A major feature of our Honours program is a required course in economics research writing, which provides students with a solid foundation for graduate research work.
