The economics minor (offered through the College of Arts and Sciences) is available to all students except those majoring or specializing in economics. The minor is for students who want some exposure to economics but who do not want the full complement of theory. The minor is an excellent complement to other social sciences such as political science, psychology, history, or sociology, and provides a strong policy focus.
Minor (21 hours) - Fall 2021 course requirements
21 credit hours required:
- ECON 2020, Principles of Microeconomics (3)
- ECON 2030, Principles of Macroeconomics (3)
- Select 15 additional ECON hours (except ECON 2000) (15)
- Satisfy a written and oral communications requirement in Economics. Certification by an Economics faculty member that the requirement has been met is required. Details are available in the Economics Department office.
Notes: ECON 2000 does not count in the minor. All courses in the minor must be taken for a letter grade.
Substitute courses must be approved by the department. All students must complete at least 15 credit hours toward the minor that are not counted in the student's major or specialization or another minor.
For non-business students, the total number of hours earned in the Schmidthorst College of Business courses may not exceed 25 percent or 30 hours of the 122 needed for graduation, counting the major and the minor. (Note: six hours of STAT and nine hours of ECON are exempt from this limitation.)
