About the Minor
The Department offers a minor in Economics to students who want to develop some knowledge in this field but wish to major in another discipline. Students completing a Business Administration degree, a minor in Environmental Studies, a Certificate in Conservation Biology, a Certificate in Actuarial Studies, or a Math degree with related coursework in Economics can obtain a minor with just a few extra courses.
Requirements for the Minor
Candidates for a minor in economics must take a minimum of 15 hours in economics.
The following courses are required:
For the remaining 9 hours, 3 hours must be at or above the 2000 level and 6 hours must be at or above the 3000 level. It is recommended that students take ECON 3001, Intermediate Economic Theory: Microeconomics and/or ECON 3002, Intermediate Economic Theory: Macroeconomics. ECON 3100, Economics Statistics, cannot be counted towards the economics minor if the student has also taken LOG OM 3300, MATH 1320, or equivalent.
