It's time for change at McGill—just ask the students.
In the 2019-20 academic year, Expanding Economics surveyed almost 300 McGill students taking economics courses for their major or minor. Here is what we found.
Only 26.5% of students are satisfied with the economics programme at McGill.
Less than 20% of students feel their verbal or written communication skills have improved through their economics courses.
65% of students wish they were taught more applied empirical methods, including data analysis with software such as R, STATA, or MATLAB.
Less than 30% of students feel their economics courses have helped them understand the economic implications of climate change.
These findings suggest there are very serious deficiencies in the undergraduate economics programme at McGill.
