Admission for students entering the program in 2023/24 or earlier

Students can apply to the Food and Resource Economics program after completing a minimum of 24 credits of post-secondary level courses, including: LFS_V 150, WRDS_V 150 or ENGL_V 100-level; MATH_V 104, ECON_V 101 and either MATH_V 105 or ECON_V 102. To be considered, students are required to have a minimum academic standing of at least 70% (or 2.80 on a 4-point scale). Achievement of this minimum, however, does not guarantee admission. Due to receipt of many more qualified applicants than there are spaces available in most programs, a higher average is often required.

To help assess suitability students must submit with their application a 500 word (maximum) Letter of Intent which addresses the following: a) why the student wishes to enrol in the Food and Resource Economics program; b) the student's professional aspirations; and c) any relevant personal, volunteer, or work experience.

While not required, students interested in applying to the Bachelor of Science in Food and Resource Economics are strongly encouraged to follow the first-year requirements of the Food and Resource Economics Degree as outlined here.
