Economics (MA)

Program description

Most students accepted for admission to the Master's program in economics at Queen's possess an Honours Bachelor's degree with a major concentration in economics. Most successful applicants will have taken undergraduate courses in statistics and quantitative methods for economics, intermediate and advanced micro- and macroeconomic theory, and two or three further upper-year courses in economics, plus courses in linear algebra and differential and integral calculus. Applicants whose previous degree is not from a Canadian or U.S. university, are required to submit the GRE. The Master's program normally requires at least three terms of full-time study to complete, and must be completed satisfactorily within five years of initial registration in the program. Students entering the Master's program with full-time status in the Fall Term must take at least three half-courses in each of the Fall and Winter Terms.
