Economics Minor


The Economics minor offers students the opportunity to strengthen their main areas of expertise thought the exposure to a rigorous curriculum that focuses on decision making and allocation of resources both at the individual level and within the private and public sectors.

A minor in Economics consists of 18 credit hours.

Required Courses (6 cr.)

Elective Courses (12 cr.)

Four additional economics electives are required, at least 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 variety of options are open to students who minor in Economics. Courses can be taken across the general areas listed below, or a series of courses can be chosen from within one specific area to strengthen or complement the student's major discipline. Many graduate programs, such as MBAs, require some of these courses and some schools may waive them if they have been taken at the undergraduate level.

The following are some of the courses from which the four electives can be chosen grouped by general areas: 

General Economics 

Economic Policies 

Business Economics 

International Economics 

Applied Data Analysis and Quantitative Methods
