Economics Extended Minor

Admission Requirements

Program admission is limited. Entry is via a formal department application. Students may apply for admission once 30 units have been completed, ECON 201 is completed with at least a C-, the minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is met and the ECON/BUEC program GPA is met.

The department announces the minimum CGPA below which students will not normally be considered for admission to its programs.

Applications with appropriate documentation should be filed with the departmental advisor. Students not accepted upon initial application may reapply.

Continuation in Program

To continue in an economics program, students must maintain a 2.0 CGPA.

Course Information

For a course to fulfil a prerequisite, or for a required course to be accepted in a student’s economics program, a grade of C- or higher must be obtained.

BUEC courses are offered jointly by the Beedie School of Business and the Department of Economics. They may count for credit in either business administration or economics programs, but not for both.

Access to ECON 402, 403, 435 and 499W is restricted to students who have excelled in their studies (see ECON course descriptions). These advanced courses are recommended for students wishing to pursue more challenging work or who plan to complete an additional degree.

Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Requirements

Students should fulfil Faculty requirements early in their programs and obtain broadly based backgrounds before entering upper division courses.

For a course to fulfil a prerequisite, or for a required course to be accepted in an economics program students must have a grade of C- or higher.

Program Requirements

Students complete the same lower division requirements as a major. The requirements are as follows.

Lower Division Requirements

Students complete the following with at least a C- grade in each course prior to program admission.
