Notes

  1. These courses are offered and can be complete during the fall or winter session.
  2. Students who intend to pursue graduate studies in economics should select MAT1300 or the sequence MAT1320 and MAT1325 (this last course can be replaced by MAT1322). A strong background in mathematics helps students succeed in advanced courses and graduate studies in economics.
  3. Students who intend to participate in the Coop program should take ECO3150 and ECO3151 in their second year.
