The Faculty of Arts offers the Applied Energy Economics program. The Program provides the historical and institutional background and the basic tools necessary for an understanding of the operation of North American and world energy markets. The program includes the development of analytical and problem-solving skills. Students will benefit from expert instruction by academics at the university.
While it is anticipated that students who graduate with a Minor or Concentration in applied energy economics will enhance their prospects of securing relevant and rewarding employment in the energy sector, additional education and training is recommended for those wishing to take full advantage of the career opportunities in applied energy economics. This typically involves the completion of a master's degree. Students contemplating graduate work should consult the Department of Economics in the selection of courses.
There are two Applied Energy Economics programs. For the non-Economics major there is a Minor in Applied Energy Economics. For the Economics Major there is a Concentration in Applied Energy Economics. The Minor or Concentration in Applied Energy Economics Concentration will be recorded on a student's transcript.
