Tell us about studying economics in Canada

I am currently in my 3rd year in the Economics program. Courses are counted on a credit basis. We need 20 credits to graduate and each course is 0.5 credits. This means over the 4 years we are completing 40 courses, typically 10 courses each academic year. The tuition fee on the website is also based on the number of credits we take per semester and the faculty. For a semester, I pay about 13,000-15000 Canadian dollars for tuition for my program. The first year is mostly a general introductory year where you learn about business, economics, accounting concepts. Half of the courses taken in the first year will be electives that you can choose from any faculty. This gives us a chance to lighten the course load and also explore other interesting subjects. Starting from the second year, the focus went into more Economics with courses like Econometrics, Microeconomics, Statistics, etc. This structure is common to all programs.A Lecture for a course is usually about 3 hours per week. As a full-time student, I am taking 5 courses which means I spend around 15 hours in class a week. The final exam for a typical course is about 40 percent of your grade which means the rest of the percentage is from midterms, quizzes, assignments, discussions, or participation marks. This changes from course to course, professor to professor. On a regular week, I spend about 25 hours on my school work.There are lots of supports for students such as the Math and Stat support centre for people struggling with mathematics/statistics/coding type courses. The teaching and learning centre host lots of study skills and time management workshops for free so students can acquire better learning strategies from them.

I love my economics classes. My professors are approachable and eager to help me on how to engage in research and build a decent profile for grad school applications. STU is a small university but that's what makes you feel like you receive a great amount of support and resources.
