This is a Research based Program.

The Department of Economics of the University of Windsor offers an intellectually demanding and stimulating M.A. program. Small class sizes give students the opportunity to work closely, in and out of the classroom, with faculty members.

Students are drawn from a variety of backgrounds, but a good knowledge of economics and strong quantitative skills, as well as good English language skills, are required.
Graduates of a three-year B.A. in Economics may also apply for the M1 program in lieu of an honours year in Economics.
Our program provides a rigorous training in theory and methods that will help you develop important skills to pursue careers in business and financial sectors, government services as well as further graduate study in Economics.
