Economics Department

Economics is the study of the distribution of goods and services, examining how economies work. It’s an area that shapes human societies with a direct impact on day-to-day life.

Why study economics at Capilano University?

Studying economics will empower you with tools to analyse the government, business and social trends behind life-shaping factors from unemployment to globalization.

Our courses examine the interconnected nature of the world around us. You’ll learn how decisions over resources have widespread consequences, and how conceptual models of behaviour can be created to predict such outcomes.

The study of economics is an excellent foundation for careers in business, government and international studies.
