There is no formal application for the Minor Program for students in the Faculty of Arts. Students who are enrolled in a Major program other than Economics, and who obtain at least 30 credits and no more than 42 credits in Economics, with at least 18 of these credits in a course numbered 300 or above, qualify to graduate with a Minor in Economics. Econ 310 and Econ 311 cannot be included in the requirement of 18 credits in courses numbered 300 or above. Economics courses which do not have Econ 101 and Econ 102, (or Econ 100) as a prerequisite, for which unassigned transfer credit may have been granted, may not be included in the 30 credits required for a Minor in Economics. At least 24 of the 120 credits required for the B.A. degree must be in subjects or fields other than those of the Major and Minor. Note: Students in the Faculty of Science, Sauder Business School or Faculty of Applied Science should contact their undergraduate office for a Minor Program Approval Form.
The honours, majors and combined majors code can only be entered by the Vancouver School of Economics if you are accepted into the programs. The minor code can be entered by you (Faculty of Arts Students only) on the Student Services Centre as long as you have a major. The Minor code for Economics is: 3006.
It is recommended that students check their program of study to ensure that they complete (i) all requirements for their Economics Minor program; (ii) all requirements for their intended major; and (iii) all Faculty of Arts/Faculty of Sciences/Sauder Business School/Faculty Applied Science requirements for graduation.
Yes, it is possible to do a Minor in Economics without taking Econ 301 (Econ 201) and Econ 302 (Econ 202).
Econ 310 and 311 are introductory courses similar to Econ 101 and 102 and do not count towards the 18 upper level (300+) courses required for the Minor. These courses count towards the 12 lower level (100-299) credit courses for the Minor in Economics.
No! Economics courses which do not have Econ 101 and Econ 102 or the equivalent as a prerequisite, for which unassigned transfer credit may have been granted (e.g. Econ 1st), may not be included in the 30 credits required for a Minor in Economics.
