Economics as a Minor

For students majoring in other departments, a minor in economics is useful for employment in business or government and for graduate work in any of the social sciences, law, or business.

A minor requires 15 hours of economics courses, including both Economics 240 and 241.  Economics 301 cannot be counted towards the minor.  Students must obtain at least a 2.0 grade point average in 15 hours of economics courses counted toward the minor.  Transfer students must take at least three economics courses in the Department of Economics.
