Economics (Co-op)

The Economics Co-op program provides an integrated academic/work experience for students with co-operating employer organizations. Students in the program must complete 4 work terms while fulfilling the requirements of their honours Economics program.

All co-op students must complete the Economics core plus an introductory computer science course (27-), 36-277 Introductory Mathematical Economics and 36-374 Introduction to Econometrics in their first 4 semesters.

Admission in the co-op program is limited to students of high academic standing and will be considered only at semester 1 entry or at the end of semester 2.

The first 2 work terms normally follow completion of the first 4 semesters of academic study. Students will only be permitted to take these work terms if they are eligible to continue in the Honours Economics program, have completed the required courses and are maintaining a satisfactory standing in their Economics program. Co-op students must complete the Special Study Co-operative Education course, 36-492, during their 4th work term; the 3rd and 4th work terms will normally follow the 6th academic semester.

For further information on the Economics Co-op program students are urged to consult the department's Program Guide and Co-operative Education Programs in Section X--Degree Programs in this calendar. A sample schedule of studies is outlined below.

Students should review the Economics section in the schedule of studies for additional program information.
