Q
Asked by: Omar
Question: I want to know what are the prerequisites for having a major of economics and a minor of International development so what are the first two courses that I should take for this summer

Answered by: Samantha
Answer: Hi Omar, The commerce program at Saint Mary’s is structured so that for the first two years of your program, no matter your major, you will take the same requirements as all other commerce students. You can find those requirements here: http://www.smu.ca/academics/sobey/bcomm-program-structure.html In your third and fourth year, you would complete your Economics program requirements, more specific to your degree. You can read more about the requirements for a major in Economics at the following link: http://www.smu.ca/academics/sobey/bcomm-economics.html#reqMajor In your first and second year, you are afforded some “free” electives, and “arts” electives, which you can use to fit your minor in IDS in. For more information on requirements for the IDS minor program, please see page 4 of the following link: http://www.smu.ca/webfiles/UG_PAGE.pdf I would recommend if you are just starting the commerce program at SMU, to take some of the first year required business courses, such as micro and macro economics, or management. Business courses are typically more widely offered in the summer than arts courses because every students in the commerce program must take those specific courses. I would recommend also making an appointment to meet with your academic advisor when you start at SMU so you can plan out your degree and fitting your minor in. Best of luck!
