About Economics

About Economics

For more up-to-date, detailed information about the Department and its programs, please visit our websites as follows:

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.

Information on credit for economics courses taken elsewhere is available at: www.mcgill.ca/economics/undergraduates/courses. For information on Economics internships, see www.mcgill.ca/arts-internships/credit/economics.
