Minors and elective group

Adding an elective group or a Minor is an excellent way to complement your degree and to acquire knowledge in a specific field of study. The Department of Economics offers one elective group and two Minors to students interested in learning more about analytical economics, macroeconomics, microeconomics, computing, and economic policy.
Students interested in adding a Minor to their degree should visit us in H-1155, or contact the Undergraduate Program Assistant.

Minor in Economics

The Minor in Economics is a 30-credit program open to all Concordia students registered in an undergraduate degree program, regardless of their home department. It is not necessary to have taken prerequisites in Economics in high school or cégep to add the Minor in Economics to your degree.

Minor in Analytical Economics

The Minor in Analytical Economics is a 24-credit program intended for students registered in a Bachelor's Degree in Science, Mathematics and Statistics, Engineering, and JMSB. Students from other departments may still apply, depending on their previous studies. 

Econometrics and Programming elective group

Elective groups are courses focused on a given theme. This elective group is dedicated to mathematics, economics, and computer skills; this combined skillset is in high demand on the job market. The 15 credits will be considered as part of your general education requirements; a notation titled "Elective Group: Econometrics and Programming" will also appear on your academic record once you enrol.
