Economics and Mathematics are complementary disciplines. Indeed, much of current economic theory is expressed in terms of mathematical models, and most branches of economics use mathematical, statistical, and computational concepts extensively. Also, many advances in mathematics have been motivated by problems from economics.
The Faculty of Mathematics and the Faculty of Arts are proud to offer this collaborative plan. In addition to this Mathematical Economics plan offered by the Faculty of Mathematics, the Faculty of Arts also offers an Honours Mathematical Economics plan which leads to a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. Since the juniorlevel courses are common to both degrees, the structure of the plan makes it easier for students to switch between the two plans. Students contemplating an application to transfer Faculties should consult an advisor regarding important effects of such a change (such applications are not automatically granted).
