The Department of Economics offers several challenging academic programs and is home to a vibrant group of professors whose research touches on a wide range of issues.  Experiential learning through co-op and unique directed research courses are a hallmark of our undergraduate programs, which also offer students an opportunity to develop their skills in both of Canada’s official languages.  Our MA and PhD programs prepare students for a variety of careers in the public and private sectors.  Our professors are engaged in research on topics including philanthropy, carbon taxes, pollution, the behaviour of NGOs, the effects of minimum wages, health inequalities, mergers, property rights and environmental regulation, strategic behavior, affirmative action and employment, social networks, aboriginal issues, terrorism, research transparency, trade policy, inflation, and climate policy.
