About the course
Economics is the study of resource allocation and examines how the economy operates to provide us with the things we want. In a world of scarce resources, choices have to be made and economics studies how those choices are made. Economics is very important and yet in public affairs economic decisions are sometimes made without an understanding of basic economic principles. The student who is interested in looking at the long term effects of economic policy on the community and is interested in combining this with some solid analytical and empirical tools, will find the study of economics exciting and intellectually stimulating as well as useful for a rewarding career. Economics is a social science dedicated to the study of decision-making under scarcity, and the factors that influence wealth. Economics involves financial topics and broader historical, sociological and cultural topics ranging from the individual (microeconomics) to governments, industries and central banking (macroeconomics). This extensive and multidisciplinary study of the economy is what sets it apart from other seemingly similar topics such as Business or Finance.

In 2006, the Lakehead experience was brought to Central Ontario’s beautiful cottage country in the City of Orillia. Lakehead University is situated in two areas of the city with campus locations in the historic downtown and 500 University Avenue. In 2010, our brand-new state-of-the-art campus opened which made it the first campus in North America to be built to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standard. The Academic Building is environmentally friendly in every way possible; from the green roofing system, to geothermal energy source, water collection ponds, and much more. The campus also features a 250-bed residence, cafeteria and bookstore. All students have access to recreational facilities through our partnership with the YMCA.
