About Economics, BA, Masters Degree - at University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC)

UNBC offers Undergraduate and Masters programs of study.  Undergrads can choose from Joint Majors such as Economics and Mathematics or Economics and International Studies. Graduate students have a choice of earning a Masters in Development Economics or International Studies. 

A degree in Economics is also good background for obtaining professional designations, professional degrees (such as Law), and graduate qualifications (such as Master in Economics or Public Policy).
