ECO101H1 and ECO102H1

Starting in the May-August 2017 summer semester, the Department of Economics will split the full year 1.0 FCE course ECO100Y1 – Introduction to Economics into two half year 0.5 FCE courses: ECO101H1 – Principles of Microeconomics and ECO102H1 – Principles of Macroeconomics.


ECO101H1 and ECO102H1 Course Description:.

ECO 101H Principles of Microeconomics
An introduction to economic analysis and its applications: price determination, market structure, decision making by individuals and firms, public policy. NOTE: extensive use of graphical and quantitative analysis.
Recommended Preparation:
MCV4U (Calculus & Vectors) and MHF4U (Advanced Functions), or equivalent secondary school mathematics credits

ECO 102H  Principles of Macroeconomics
An introduction to economic analysis and its applications from a macroeconomic (economy-wide) perspective. Topics covered include international trade and finance, role of money and the banking system, monetary and fiscal policy. Note: graphical and quantitative analysis are used extensively.
Recommended Preparation:
MCV4U (Calculus & Vectors) and MHF4U (Advanced Functions), or equivalent secondary school mathematics credits

ECO101H is a prerequisite for ECO102H
Students must achieve 63% in each of the half courses in order to gain entry into the Economics Major and Minor programs, and the Minor in Environmental Economics  (hence the old ECO100Y1 with 67% will be replaced with ECO101H with 63% and ECO102H with 63%).
