Minor in Economics

A Minor in Economics is offered to students earning degrees outside the School of Business.  The program provides instruction on economic institutions and a rigorous foundation in the analytical tools and applied areas of economics, relying on mathematical and statistical techniques. Students learn how the price system operates; how consumers, firms, and government institutions allocate scarce resources; and the determinants of national output, inflation, unemployment, economic growth, and international trade. Laws, regulations, and institutions that influence economic activity are also studied. The program should be attractive to students who wish to broaden their education and to understand the forces that shape the modern world.
