Queen's had one of Canada's leading departments of economics and the undergraduate programs. We offer structured and balanced examinations of modern economics. The introductory courses provide a comprehensive survey of many aspects of the subject, with an emphasis on analytical principles. They serve both as a foundation for further study and as a general introduction for those who want only a taste of what the subject is about. Those who pursue a concentration in economics are guided through courses in more advanced economic theory, statistical and econometric techniques of data analysis, the historical background of today's economies, and the application of contemporary economic analysis to public finance, to money, banking and finance, to international trade and finance, to natural resources and the environment, to economic growth and development, to labour markets and income distribution, to business cycles, and to the economic systems of other countries.
