Concentrations

The undergraduate degree in Economics does not require students to concentrate in a specific area of Economics.  Students may be interested in choosing courses that complement each other. 

The concentrations listed in the chart (PDF chart below) are not noted in the Economics Academic Requirements Report (ARR) on SPIRE, transcript, or diploma.  Students do not need to take all of the courses designated within a concentration; four or five of the courses cover a solid understanding in each concentration.

In addition to ECON 203 – Intermediate Microeconomics (or RES-ECON 202 – Price Theory) and ECON 204 – Intermediate Macroeconomics courses required for the Economics major, ECON 452 – Econometrics and ECON 309 – Game Theory, provide tools used by most economists and that are relevant, irrespective of concentration.
