D. DEGREE OPTIONS
- The BA Honours in Economics can be taken with Co-operative Education. See section 3.4.4 Co-operative Education Programs for information and requirements.
- The BA Honours in Economics can be taken with a “Concentration in Applied Energy Economics” (see section 4.24.4).
- If a student has an acceptable Minor Field or a concentration of at least 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents), the Undergraduate Director may reduce the number of courses in Economics required for Honours below 60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents). In all cases, the student must have at least 48 units (8.0 full-course equivalents) and meet Requirements 1-3.
- Students are advised to take Mathematics 211, Economics 357 and 395 early in their programs of study because these courses are prerequisites for many 400- and 500- level economics courses.
- For program advice on recommended courses outside the Department, consult the Explicit Syllabus of the Department of Economics at: econ.ucalgary.ca/undergraduate/explicit-syllabus.
