Minor in Finance

Students may seek either an academic major or minor in finance.

The finance minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by providing a study of the institutions, theory, and practice associated with the allocation of financial resources within the private sector.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in finance requires the completion of 15 credits of coursework in finance. All FINC courses apply. It is recommended that students take FINC 330 and 340 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.
