Minor in Economics

Students may seek an academic minor in economics.

The economics minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by providing a study of the forces that determine production and distribution, price levels, and income distribution, as well as other economic factors that influence the quality of life.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in economics requires the completion of 15 credits in economics. All ECON courses apply. Students should take ECON 201 and 203 as the first courses in the minor (if they have not already applied the courses toward other degree requirements).

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
