Description of program
- Graduate diploma - Disciplinary graduate diplomas provide an opportunity to acquire additional academic credentials at the graduate level without committing to a full master’s program. These programs allow students to expand on their knowledge of a particular discipline and may also be used for professional development within their careers.
- MA – Although building on strong theoretical foundations, the focus of the MA program is applied economics. The course route, which can be completed in one year, involves two semesters of courses and a research essay. The thesis option involves courses and a dissertation and can be completed in two years.
