For more up-to-date, detailed information about the Department and its programs, please visit our websites as follows: www.mcgill.ca/economics/undergraduates/majorminor for information on the major and minor programs, and www.mcgill.ca/economics/undergraduates/honours for information on the honours programs.

U0 students interested in economics should take ECON 208 and ECON 209. These courses provide good preparation for the honours and major programs, although neither course is a prerequisite for either program. The first year of microeconomics courses for the Honours program (ECON 250D1/ECON 250D2) and for the Majors program (ECON 230D1/ECON 230D2) should not be taken in the U0 year.

Note: The Economics Honours program is offered to both B.A. and B.Com. students. All Honours students must meet with a Department Honours adviser in each year of their Honours program.
