Economics may be a specialized area of knowledge, but it is relevant to almost every aspect of our lives. At its core, it is the study of reasoned choice in the context of scarce resources and competing interests. The need to make such choices pervades the day-to-day lives of all of us—as individuals and in society as a whole. Carleton’s Bachelor of Economics (BEcon) is offered as an Honours program in which you study the operation of market-based economies, examining the causes of economic growth, inflation, unemployment and international trade. You will look at how governments manage their economies by developing and administering policies to regulate activities such as international trade, taxes and competition, and you will study economic theory and research methods.
