Program Information

School:Dalhousie University
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Economics, General
Description:Economics is a social science - a science because it involves a rigorous intellectual effort to derive logical conclusions from basic facts and propositions; a social science because it has human beings and their welfare as its ultimate concern. The basic facts of Economics cannot be knowable and measurable with the same precision as those of the physical sciences - human society and its motivations are far too complex to permit this - but none of the sciences surpasses economics in its relevance to our needs, problems and goals.

Economics analyzes the equity, efficiency, and sustainability of human behavior in the production, distribution, and consumption of commodities. Economics is not an easy science; indeed, it is one of the most complex, difficult (and fascinating) areas of study when you pursue it beyond its elementary levels, but some basic knowledge of economics is essential for any educated person. A more extensive knowledge of the subject is an invaluable complement to other fields of specialization such as law, commerce, politics and other studies in social sciences or humanities, and a specialization in the field can lead to a variety of interesting career opportunities.
