Economics Student Research Day
Download the Economics Student Research Day 2019 program.
Near the end of every academic year, Honours students who are supervised by an Economics faculty member present their Honours theses to the University community in a professional environment. This gives them an opportunity to share their newly-found research results with the public while giving them a taste of what it's like to present their work in a professional conference setting.
Due to the large number of Honours students studying Economics, this is usually a day-long event.
Programs of previous Economics Student Research Days are found below.
Student Research Collaboration
Honours economics students have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty on peer-reviewed research projects. Collaborative student roles can include paid research assistantships and well as co-authorship toward peer-reviewed publications.
