Applying for Admission



In order to be admitted to the master's program, a student must meetLaurier's general admission requirements for graduate students. Applicants are expected to have an undergraduate degree at the honours level with a minimum of second class honours or B standing.In the 4th year of their program, these grades are expected to be considerably higher, as eligibility for a CIGI Junior Fellowship is based on a competitive academic standing.

All candidates are expected to have completed the equivalent of a one term undergraduate course in microeconomic theory, a one term undergraduate course in macroeconomic theory,an introductory statistics course and a relevant political science course (it is recommended that this be in the area of policy, at a senior level). Applicants with inadequate preparation in any of these areas will normally be required to complete additional undergraduate courses before they are admitted to the master's program.

Students with undergraduate degrees in Economics or Political Science or whose training and interests involve significant interdisciplinary research pertinent to the area of international public policy are encouraged to apply.
