What will I learn?

The Major in Financial Economics Module, by itself, can be either a 3 or 4 year Degree. The Financial Economics Major can be combined with a Major in another subject in order to create an Honors Double Major Degree. For the purposes of progression and graduation, ALL Honors Economics courses taken shall be counted as principal courses, and the requirements for both majors must be met in order to graduate with an Honors Double Major.

Main campus students enrolled in a Major may not enroll in any honors level economics courses at an affiliated college; even if the course is not offered on main campus (special permission is not granted under any circumstances). Also, students enrolled at an affiliated college may not enroll in honors economic courses on main campus.

Progression in these modules will be assessed in May. Those who have not met the requirements at that time will have their registration changed.

Students planning to do graduate work in Economics, after completing an Honors Double Major Degree, are advised to consult the Department before selecting courses. Students are also advised to take intermediate to advanced Math courses as part of their electives in order to be competitive when applying to graduate school.

Scholarship eligibility is affected if courses are dropped. Students must have five full courses in the current year as well as in the previous year of study (summer courses are excluded).

Completion of first-year requirements, including the following 1.5 courses with an average of at least 70% and with no mark less than 60%: Economics 1021A/B and 1022A/B, or the former Economics 1020; and Calculus 1000A/B or 1500A/B or the former Calculus 1100A/B. (Engineering students and Science students may substitute Economics 2001A/B, and Applied Math 1413A/B (Engineering only)
