Douglas College Economics instructors are here because their primary focus is teaching, but they are also involved in the field.

Some are consultants and business people, many of them take an active role in the community, serving on boards of businesses and other institutions. They've made important economic decisions and they'll help you hone your analytical and business instincts.

If you have a general question about the Economics program, please contact us.
