Economics Minor

The economics minor introduces students to fundamental economic concepts and issues while strengthening their analytical skills. As a highly interdisciplinary field, economics can be useful for all students interested in supplementing their existing major. A minor in economics provides knowledge and information that helps students to critically evaluate how society and government policies affect their daily lives. Students will have a choice of options to direct their learning to the specific area of economics in which they are interested. The minor requires 21 credits of coursework.
