Message from the Associate ChairWelcome to the undergraduate Economics website for prospective and current students. On these pages, you will find information about our programs and courses, as well as other useful resources and links.
The Department of Economics is one of the largest in the Faculty of Arts and Science, with more than 3,000 students enrolled in our minor, major and specialist programs. We are a partner with the Rotman School of Management in offering the Commerce program, and we also participate in joint programs with Mathematics and Computer Science. With more than fifty faculty members and a small group of sessional lecturers, we are able to offer a wide variety of courses in all the major fields of Economics.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic,the department is not offering in-person student advising at this time. All advising will be online, either through email, telephone or MS Teams. Students enrolled in Economics programs and first-year students should contact Ms. Sally Wong, the Undergraduate Administrator. Students enrolled in the Rotman Commerce and Financial Economics programs—as well as students interested in those programs—should contact Ms. Jenny Fan, the Undergraduate Commerce Administrator. If your question cannot be answered directly, you will be scheduled for an online (MS Teams) or telephone appointment. For questions related to degree requirements, please consult your College’s Registrar.
