NEW! In the Fall and Winter of the 2018/19 academic year ECON 1001 (Introduction to Economics: Microeconomics) & ECON 1002 (Introduction to Economics: Macroeconomics) will be offered instead of ECON 1000.

Students in non-economics (and non-economics related) programs can now choose to take a 0.5 credit introductory course in Economics!

ECON 1001 is an introduction to the major tools and policy problems of microeconomics. Economic analysis is applied to a variety of contemporary problems such as pollution, poverty, the control of monopoly and international economic problems.

ECON 1002 is an introduction to the major tools and policy problems of macroeconomics. Economic analysis is applied to a variety of contemporary problems such as economic growth, unemployment and inflation.

Things you should know:

Students in the BA (Economics), B. Econ, minor in Economics or a program which requires ECON 1000 (such as BIB, B. Comm, B. Papm, Food Sciences) as a program requirement, will be required to complete both ECON 1001 and 1002 to fulfill the 1.0 credit requirement in place of ECON 1000 on their audit for graduation purposes.

Note that taking ECON 1001 on its own will preclude credit for any previously earned ECON 1000 or FYSM 1003 credit.  As well, taking ECON 1002 on its own will preclude credit for any previously earned ECON 1000 or FYSM 1003 credit.

Qualification requirements for higher level courses: Courses requiring ECON 1000 with a minimum C- will require a minimum of C- in both ECON 1001 and ECON 1002.

If you are an Economics student please check the recommended course patterns for our programs on the sidebar of the Undergraduate Studies page.
