Student research is an important part of the undergraduate experience in the Economics department at StFX. In addition to student research projects, faculty members hire honours students to work as Research Assistants during summer months prior to their final year at StFX. Contracts vary depending on the available funding and the needs of the particular research projects. Interested students should check here in the Spring semester for postings available in the summer 2019.
