Who we are
Since its establishment more than 40 years ago, the Department of Economics has grown rapidly. Support services include computer facilities, tutorial services for selected courses and the services of department advisors. We are sure that you will find a challenging atmosphere for learning here. The Department prepares you for career opportunities in business and government, as well as for further studies at the graduate level.
The Department aims to educate students in Economics, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels and to contribute to the advancement of the discipline through research and teaching. Economists study the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services - essential knowledge for today's business leaders and policy makers. Blending both theory and practical applications, the Department of Economics serves students preparing for related specialized professions (Honours, Specialization, Co-operative) as well as those interested in a generalized understanding of the discipline (Major, Minor programs).
