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. Most students opt for the non-thesis option (eight half courses plus extended research paper) given that it is the standard in most graduate economics programs in North America. Many students will take six courses during their first year (three in fall, three in winter); two courses in the fall of the second year and complete their extended paper in the winter of the second year.

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 experience. Two four-month work terms (which may be taken consecutively) follow the first two terms of study.
