Eighteen (18) credit hours are needed for a minor in Economics. All minors must take Economics I (ECON.2010) and Economics II (ECON.2020). Four additional economics electives are required, two of which must be at the 3000-level or 4000-level. No 1000 level courses may be used as part of 18 required credit hours.
Within this general framework, a wide variety of options are 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.
The following are some of the courses from which a minor courses can be chosen grouped by general areas:
