Economics

The 18-credit minor program in Economics is for students who see Economics as a valuable complement to their majors in other fields. Its ability to bring into sharp focus the economic issues and problems subsumed in such areas as Business Administration, Political Science, Sociology, History, Pre-Law, Music or Engineering make it a valuable career asset.

Requirements

The minor in Economics requires the completion of EC 101, EC 102, and at least 12 additional economics credits chosen in consultation with an academic advisor in the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences.
