Economics (Faculty of Arts)
Comment les sociétés saventelles quelles marchandises elles doivent produire et en quelles quantités, qui consomme ces marchandises et comment les tendances en matière de consommation varientelles au fil du temps? Sur quoi sont basées les décisions que prennent les gens en ce qui concerne leurs études, leur travail, leur lieu de résidence, la quantité de chacun des biens qu’ils consomment, la valeur des épargnes qu’ils doivent faire et la façon d’investir ces épargnes? Qu’estce qui détermine les prix, les taux de change, les taux d’intérêt et le niveau de l’inflation? Comment la mondialisation de l’économie canadienne touchetelle les divers secteurs de l’économie du Canada? Les étudiants en économie acquièrent des connaissances sur ces enjeux et sur de nombreux autres qui jouent un rôle central dans le bienêtre des sociétés.
Les études en économie à l’Université McGill peuvent être suivies dans un contexte non mathématique et plus souple dans le cadre de nos programmes de concentrations majeures ou dans un contexte plus mathématique dans le cadre de nos programmes de spécialisation. Les concentrations mineures en économie s’adressent aux étudiants qui s’intéressent principalement à une discipline autre que l’économie, mais qui désirent néanmoins acquérir une certaine spécialisation en économie.
LISTE DES COURS:
Program Requirement:
The Major Concentration in Economics is a planned sequence of courses designed to permit the student a degree of specialization in economics. It consists of 36 credits in courses approved by the Economics Department. Students wishing to pursue this concentration need to consult the department's rules and regulations at: www.mcgill.ca/economics/undergraduates/majorminor.
All students who wish to begin (or continue) the Major Concentration Economics should see a majors adviser in the Department of Economics in each of their university years. Further information may be obtained from the Department's website, or from any majors adviser; consult the Departmental office for a list of advisers and their advising times.
Students who are registering for the first time with the Department should attend the orientation meeting in August (check the website for details) before seeing an adviser.
A student choosing the Major Concentration Economics must take 36 credits in Economics. The Economics courses will normally be taken at McGill and will be selected from the courses shown below. Major Concentration in Economics students entering University at the U1 year in September should directly proceed to ECON 230D1/ECON 230D2 without taking ECON 208 and ECON 209.
Note: Students who wish to switch from the Major Concentration to Honours Economics must complete all the requirements of the Honours program.
Mathematics: Mastery of high school mathematics is required for all economics courses.
Prerequisites: In general, 200level courses have no prerequisites and 300level and 400level courses have ECON 230D1/ECON 230D2 or ECON 250D1/ECON 250D2 (or ECON 208 and ECON 209, or MGCR 293 and ECON 295) as prerequisites. In addition, 400level courses have Calculus 1 (or its equivalent) or a course in mathematical techniques for economic analysis (or its equivalent) as a prerequisite.
Required Courses (18 credits)
All students must take 6 credits of approved statistics courses. Students should refer to the Department's document "Rules on Stats Courses for Economics Students" available at: http://www.mcgill.ca/economics/undergraduates/courses/.

Special Minor in Economics for Management Students
Information on this Minor Concentration and its special restrictions is in the Desautels Faculty of Management section of the eCalendar. https://www.mcgill.ca/desautels/programs/bcom/academics/courseinformation/minors. Students should consult with the advisers in both the Faculty of Management and the Department of Economics for advice on this minor concentration.
Program Requirement:
The Honours Economics program (B.A. and B.Com.) consists of 30 specified credits of Honours courses and a further 12 credits of approved Economics courses.
Continuation in the Honours program from one year to the next requires a minimum grade of B in ECON 250 and a minimum B average in required and complementary Honours economics courses. Students failing to meet these requirements must switch out of the Honours program. If they continue to register in Honours, they will not be allowed to graduate with Honours. Note that graduation with Honours has more stringent requirements (see below) than these.
To be awarded an Honours degree, a student must obtain a 3.00 GPA in the required/core courses, a 3.00 average in the required and complementary credits in Economics, and a CGPA of 3.00. For a First Class Honours degree, the minimum requirements are a 3.50 program GPA in the required courses, a 3.50 average in the required and complementary credits in Economics, and a CGPA of 3.50. Students also have to meet the requirements of the Faculty of Arts for Honours and First Class Honours. In cases where a student takes a Supplemental Exam in a course, both the original and the Supplemental Exam grades will be counted in the calculation of the GPA and CGPA averages.
All Honours students are required to see an Honours advisor and also consult the Honours and Joint Honours programs available on the Department's website: http://www.mcgill.ca/economics/undergraduates/honours. For the current list of advisers in Economics and their advising times, see the Department of Economics' website.

Complementary Courses (12 credits)
Complementary courses are usually taken in U2 or U3.
12 credits of Economics courses at the 300, 400, or 500 level, approved by an Honours adviser. Unless explicitly approved by the Honours advisor, at least 9 of the 12 credits have to be at the 400 or 500 level. Note that Honours students are not permitted to register for majors or general Economics courses where an Honours or a more advanced undergraduate course in the same subject is offered.
Program Requirement:
Students wishing to study at the Honours level in two disciplines can combine Joint Honours program components in any two approved disciplines. For a list of available Joint Honours programs, see "Overview of Programs Offered" and "Joint Honours Programs" on the Economics Department webiste.
Joint Honours students should consult an adviser in each of the relevant departments to discuss their course selection and their interdisciplinary research project (if applicable) in each year of their program.
For the Economics component of this program, Joint Honours students should consult: http://www.mcgill.ca/economics/undergraduates/honours. For the current list of advisers in Economics and their advising times, see the website of the Department of Economics.
Continuation in the Economic component of this program from one year to the next requires a minimum grade of B in ECON 250D1/D2, and a minimum B average in the required and complementary Honours Economics courses. Students failing to meet these requirements must switch out of the Honours program. If they continue to register in Honours, they will not be allowed to graduate with Honours. Note that graduation with Honours has more stringent requirements (see below) than these.
For graduation with the Economics component, a student must also obtain a 3.00 GPA in the required courses, a 3.00 average in the required and complementary credits in Economics, and a CGPA of 3.00. For a First Class Honours degree, the minimum requirements are a 3.50 program GPA in the required courses, a 3.50 average in the required and complementary credits in Economics, and a CGPA of 3.50. In cases where a student takes a Supplemental Exam in an Economics course, both the original and the Supplemental Exam grades will be counted in the calculation of the GPA and CGPA averages.
Students also have to meet the requirements of the other component of this program and of the relevant Faculty for Honours and First Class Honours.
