Description:Canada 's economy, like those of other countries, is undergoing rapid change. A "New Economy" is emerging based on new technology and global information systems. Many traditional jobs are disappearing and new ones are being created. Economics helps us understand the forces behind today's rapidly changing economy, and the implications for the future. The study of economics provides an opportunity to discuss and analyze real-world issues such as unemployment, new technology, the global environment, protection, and equality for women.

Our economics department offers both majors and honours programmes as well as a majors programme that combines studies in economics and business. In addition to offering courses in economic theory, the department's course offerings focus on a broad range of contemporary issues in economics including women in society, environmental economics and industrial relations. In addition to fulfilling the requirements for a Major in Economics, students selecting the business option are required to complete 18 credit hours in business.
