    Course Summary

    Economists study how individuals and groups make choices regarding money, resources and time. This discipline touches upon fields like business administration, psychology, sociology, political science and even anthropology. Studying economics requires a solid background in mathematics, statistics and history as well. 

    Saint Mary’s University offers two primary pathways to an Economics degree – the Bachelor of Commerce route or the Bachelor of Arts route. Either can be taken as a standard Major or as an Honours degree. 

    • Co-operative Education option

    Either the BA or BoC degree can be taken with co-op content. This will see you doing paid work at a provincial or federa department or a similar agency, or at a range of financial institutions. 

    • Overseas and Exchange options

    Saint Mary’s Economics students will be able to sign up for a range of academic exchange programs with the university’s partner institutions in Africa, South America, Asia or Europe.

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.

    Saint Mary’s University relies on a wide range of learning and teaching methods. They seek to blend both traditional and innovative techniques to produce a unique curriculum appropriate to each degree they offer.

The Economics program includes many co-op, volunteer and summer opportunities.

    A degree in Economics can lead to many different careers in the public, private and not for profit sectors. Many Baccalaureate level students stay on for a Master’s or MBA degree, though many others go directly into working in their chosen field. Saint Mary’s Economics graduates have become health policy analysts, program evaluators, securities analysts, financial researchers, policy analysts and international trade advisors. However, there are many more options open to you.

    St Mary’s offers both A BoC and a BA in Economics.

    Applicants to either program must typically have completed a secondary school education or the international equivalent. Great weight will be given to the GPA earned by your final year.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
