|Description:||The BA in Honours Economics program is a four-level program that offers the challenge of more advanced work in economics.
The honours program provides excellent preparation for graduate work in applied economics, economic policy, business, law, public administration, urban planning and other professional disciplines. For example, students planning a career in business or the public sector often select the honours economics degree followed by the MBA or MPA degree. Such programs typically expect an Honours B.A. but do not require the advanced courses in economic theory. Other requirements for admission vary substantially among programs and universities.
