This key program is designed for those with a keen interest in economics and public policy. It can lead to careers in a variety of areas including policy analysis and economic consultancy. Flexibility on the program allows students to pursue either a traditional economics program with a strong quantitative component, or a program that exposes them to alternatives to the traditional economic paradigms. The program can also form a sound basis for subsequent honours or other post-graduate studies.
