Program Overview

Queen’s offers what we believe are the finest graduate programs in Economics in Canada. Our programs prepare students for both applied and theoretical research, and, especially in the case of the M.A. program, for nonacademic careers in both the private and public sectors. Both programs involve a core of courses in economic theory and quantitative methods, together with a range of specialized electives chosen according to each student’s interest.


We offer opportunities to collaborate with the School of Business, Policy Studies and the combined Economics/JD program. Also, because of our low student-to-faculty ratio, and our ability to provide office space within the department you will have ample opportunity to interact with faculty members, in both the M.A. and Ph.D. programs.

Method of Completion

M.A.: Course work, independent research project/essay, oral exam. Master’s students have the opportunity to engage in an independent research project. All faculty members are available as supervisors of these projects.

Fields of study

Macroeconomics: Starting from an introduction to Dynamic Programming, students will develop tools and techniques that have become standard in the analysis of dynamic economies. Students will be exposed to cutting edge research and are expected to develop their own research ideas.

Microeconomic Theory: The study of firms and consumers and their interactions to determine the workings of a market economy. Strategic interactions between various players in different settings are also studied.

Applied Microeconomics: Applied microeconomics includes a range of specialized areas of study, which can draw on methods from other fields of economics. However applied work, utilizes the basic principles of price theory, supply & demand, and game theory.

Econometric Theory: Econometric theory applies the tools of statistics to economic problems. It develops methods for testing and quantifying economic theories and relationships in data.

Applied Econometrics: Applied econometrics focuses on using techniques to analyze data and uses statistical methods to produce empirical evidence to test opinions and theories.

Economic History: Using contemporary methodological and empirical techniques in an effort to understand fundamental economic relationships that have been operable in the long run. While economic history does help us to understand the past, its primary focus involves the use of past experience to illuminate current and future economic interactions.

Career paths - employment opportunities

M.A. Job Placements: The Bank of Canada, the Department of Finance, Statistics Canada, Industry Canada, Health Canada, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the Bank of Montreal, Toronto Dominion Bank, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, and Goldman Sachs. As well as placements to do a PhD at various universities in North America and the UK.
