Students are advised to consult the Undergraduate Office in the Department of Economics for more detailed information about the module.

*Students who have taken a 1.0 or 0.5 credit course in introductory statistics at the 2100 level or higher in the Department of Statistical and Actuarial Sciences can substitute that course for Economics 2222A/B towards the module requirements (exception: if the statistics course is being used in another module, no credit overlap is allowed, and students are required to replace Economics 2222A/B with another 0.5 course in Economics at the 2200 level or higher). Students who have completed any other introductory statistics course listed as an antirequisite to Economics 2222A/B must replace Economics 2222A/B with 0.5 course in Economics at the 2200 or 3000 level.

Courses counted towards this module may not be counted towards another module. If you are interested in adding a second module that requires overlapping courses, consult the department about how that issue can be resolved.

Many of the intermediate and upper level courses that can count towards this module have prerequisites. Students should carefully plan their programs of study accordingly.
