Eighteen (18) credit hours are needed for a minor in Economics. All minors must take Economics I (49.201) and Economics II (49.202). Four additional economics electives are required; two of which must be at the 300 level or 400 level.
Liberal Art students electing a concentration in Economics must complete 8 to 10 courses (24-30 credit hours), with at least half of the courses above the 300 level.
Within this general framework, a wide variety of options is open to students who minor in economics. Courses can be taken to emphasize a particular area like international, quantitative or environmental economics, or a series of courses can be chosen from different areas to strengthen or complement the student’s major discipline. Some of these courses are required in many MBA programs and some schools waive them if they have been taken at the undergraduate level.
