Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

Mathematical Economics (Co-op) (MAEC:C)

Department of Economics, College of Management and Economics

Most economic theory rests on explicit, formal, mathematical and/or statistical foundations. This specialization articulates and emphasizes these interactions. It is most suitable for students who either have, or wish to develop, a strong analytical background.

Note: Students approaching the end of their program are strongly advised to take, by arrangement with the departmental advisor, at least one of the Special Study in Economics courses (ECON*4900, ECON*4910).
