Program Information

School:Lakehead University - Faculty of Graduate Studies
Faculty:Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities
Degree:Master; Co-op
Field of Study:Economics, General
Description:The Economics program offers training in core economic theory courses as well as a number of field options. The purpose of the co-op option is to provide students with an opportunity to apply knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom and to obtain new insights and educational experiences. Two four-month work terms (which may be taken consecutively) follow the first two terms of study. To proceed to the co-op option, students must complete at least six half courses chosen from those required for the thesis and non-thesis options. The Departmental recommendation for the work terms will be based on the student’s academic performance and an interview with the Selection Committee consisting of representatives of the Department and the Student Success Centre. In consultation with the Department, the Career and Co-operative Education Services will make every effort to obtain suitable placements. Upon completion of the work terms, students will return to complete the remainder of their program.

NOTE: Students in the thesis and non-thesis programs must complete all requirements within six terms (2 years) of continuous registration. Students in the co-op option will require an additional 2 four-month work terms following the first two terms of study to satisfy the requirements of the co-op option, thereby increasing the duration of the program in the co-op option to eight terms (six terms of study plus two work terms).
