Bachelor of Arts (B.A) in Economics Bishop's University




Course info


Economics is where business, applied mathematics, and human behavior meet. Studying it requires not only an analytical mind, but also curiosity about contemporary events and society as a whole.

Economic models are used to examine choice in all forms of social interactions including but not limited to business, politics, international relations, workplace, family, schools, and criminal activities. In sum, economics provides one set of tools that you can use to analyze, explain, and predict human interaction in virtually any situation. Studying economics provides you with the analytical and critical thinking skills to understand all kinds of choice decisions and to learn more about the world in which you live.

B.A. (Major Economics)

  • The Major program provides students with the necessary skills for the job market and emphasizes a balanced approach amongst theoretical, analytical, and policy issues.
  • A unique feature of our Major program is a required practicum course in Economic Analysis and Policy that applies economic theories, in a research paper, to real world policy applications.
  • The Major program allows students to take a wide range of complementary courses in other disciplines or even to complete a double major in Economics and another discipline.
  • One of the most popular combined degrees is a major in Economics combined with a Bachelor of Business Administration with a finance concentration.
  • The research focus of the Department is appealing for students with interests in Economics, Business, Environmental Issues, Political Studies, and Mathematics.
