The Department of Economics is transitioning to a new set of undergraduate programs, leaving the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree to have our own degree, the Bachelor of Economics (B.Econ.). This new degree name better reflects the nature of our programs, which are in many ways distinct from those of the other B.A. disciplines, while also being a degree name that will be more highly valued by employers, leading to better job opportunities for our graduates.  In addition, the Department also participates in the B.G.In.S.

The Department of Economics at Carleton University and the Department of Economics at the University of Ottawa are pleased to announce the launch of the Ottawa-Carleton Graduate School of Economics (OCGSE). This new graduate School builds on more than 35 years of cooperation between the two academic departments in support the Ottawa-Carleton Ph.D. program in Economics. The M.A. program in Economics has an optional concentration in financial economics or an optional collaborative specialization in data science or African studies. We also offer a Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Economics.
