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.
What I like about Social Science is the balance of industry-specific technical know-how with career-critical soft skills: written and verbal communications, research and dissemination, time and conflict management, etc.
The degree has greatly built a foundation for my future career and personal developments. It motivates and encourages me to embark on a self-learning journey that I would not have started otherwise. I was also able to explore different topic areas that were quite interesting to me personally while doing my undergrad, which helped in my personal research that really contributed to my career path.
