Economics – Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

A minor in economics paves the way for a deeper understanding of business, finance, and health policy. The minor consists of 18 credits of coursework beyond the prerequisite course, 12 elective credits with a common intellectual bond approved by the minor advisor. A minimum of 12 credits of minor coursework must be completed in addition to any courses (required courses or program electives) included in the major curriculum. Up to 6 credits of coursework, with an earned grade of “C” or better, taken at another accredited institution may be applied to the course requirements of the minor upon prior approval of the department chair.

Interested students should apply to the minor program early in their academic career, usually by the fifth semester of college work, but no later than the end of the drop/add period of the first semester of their last year of didactic work.
