University rank #201 (WUR) ,
The Major in Economics from University of Western Ontario, by itself, can be either a 3 or 4 year Degree. The Economics Major can be combined with a Major in another subject in order to create an Honors Double Major Degree. 

About

The courses taken in the Economics program from the University of Western Ontario 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.

Selection of courses

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.
