About

Apply economic theory and communications skills to problem-solve some of today’s issues. Collect and analyze data, research trends, and evaluate economic issues.

The Economics program offered by the Laurentian University will train you in quantitative data analysis, strategic thinking and decision-making. Tutorial assistance is available on a weekly basis. The Economics Student Association is active in organizing social and networking events for students.

We systematically explore economic problems both by developing theories and examining data. At Laurentian, we offer a specialization in economics for students wishing to explore economics in depth, including students who might wish to pursue graduate studies upon completion of their BA degree.

We also offer a major in economics for students who wish to combine the study of economics with that of other subjects such as geography, environmental science or studies, mathematics, history, or political science.

For students who wish to enrol in another program, we offer a concentration, and we offer a minor in economics for students in Social Sciences, Commerce, Sports Administration, and other programs for those who wish to learn the basics of economics while focusing on another subject.
