Minor in Economics

The Minor in Economics must be combined with another degree or as part of a Double Minor. This module is designed for undergraduate students who have an interest in Economics.

Progression in these modules will be assessed in May. Those who have not met the requirements at that time will have their registration changed.

Admission Requirements

Completion of first-year requirements, including Economics 1021A/B and 1022A/B, or the former Economics 1020, or Economics 2001A/B, with no mark less than 60%. Students who fail to meet the 60% in any of these courses may take a Minor if they have a grade of at least 60% in each of Economics 2150A/B and 2152A/B.

Students should note the mathematics prerequisites for some of the courses required in the module:
