What I liked most about the Economic Policy program at McMaster University is how well it prepares you to enter the job market ... the focus is teaching you skills that you will implement in your future career.
I loved my time at McMaster. I truly felt like a part of a community, at both the Economics Department and McMaster more generally. The faculty at the Economics Department were genuinely interested and cared about me and my research interests and ambitions. Without their support, as well as the friendships that I made with other students, I would not have had such a wonderful and successful experience at McMaster.
The Department is fantastic. I've really been lucky to have the opportunity to be a part of the Department for both my undergraduate and master's degrees because the undergraduate program had allowed me to gain a broader view of health care and social aging, while the master's programs had allowed me to focus on my topics of interest and develop a deeper understanding of those topics.
