Honours in Economics: eligibility and requirements

The BA Honours in Economics is a 60-credit concentration that requires a strong basis in mathematical, analytical, and writing skills. This concentration is offered as an option to students who are looking at pursuing graduate work in Economics: graduating with Honours signals to future employers and graduate school admission committees that a student has achieved a high level of academic excellence and dedication to the discipline. Students in the Honours in Economics are trained in advanced microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics, and have the opportunity to select a number of elective courses.

While the Honours in Economics does not include a thesis course, students interested in research are encouraged to consider getting involved in undergraduate research activities at Concordia, as well as in opportunities such as the Bank of Canada Governor’s Challenge. Students are also invited to reach out to their Economics professors to inquire about mentorship opportunities in preparation for their graduate studies.
