    Course Summary

    Economics is an extremely fundamental discipline which follows the flow of money and resources through all the complex systems of modern life. It relies on the scientific method, careful data collection and in-depth analysis to model markets and business strategies. At the same time, economics is a social science. That means that all of that understanding is turned to questions of how to improve the welfare of human kind.  

    The University of Dalhousie’s BSc in Economics will show you how to best use limited resources to serve individuals, organisations and whole societies. You’ll be able to suggest sound economic policies, simulate ideal resource allocation solutions and devise unique economic strategy.

    There will also be opportunities to participate in Dal’s many Co-op Program. This could involve paid work with companies like Twitter, IBM or the Ocean Tracking Network. You’ll also develop important transferrable skills, developing your written and oral communication abilities to make you more employable in nearly any field.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
