Program Information

School:Trent University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:Economics, General
Description:Economics is the academic discipline most discussed by the general public. It is also one of the least understood. Economics is the social science that deals with problems of scarcity. It does so through a systematic and logical framework for analyzing how a society solves such problems as what goods and services to produce, how to organize production, and for whom goods and services are to be produced. Knowledge of economics is necessary for understanding and dealing intelligently with such current topics as unemployment, economic growth, income inequality, the environment, globalization, and various forms of market regulation. Besides being important for understanding contemporary social issues, economics is useful in developing career skills for business, law, teaching, public administration and research. Both verbal and mathematical training are involved in learning the discipline of economics.

Students are able to pursue either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in Economics.
