Economics (BA, BSc)

Choosing First Year Courses

Establishing the best first year schedule helps you set the foundation for a successful Acadia experience. To help with this, your department has recommended the courses you should register for in your first year. To make the process even easier for you, many departments will pre-register you for your required courses. Most programs allow you to choose and self-register for at least one elective in your first year. Academic advising is available at any stage should you need it.

If you are strong in Math and/or might like to take more mathematical based Economics courses or take more advanced courses in Math (e.g. completing a minor or a second major in Math), we would advise and encourage you to register for MATH 1013 rather than MATH 1613.
