About the Program
The Economics Minor is designed for all Business majors. It teaches both macro- and microeconomics theory and practice.
Focus of Study
Given the overlap in requirements and the applicability of many economics courses to business, students majoring in Business are particularly encouraged to pursue the Economics Minor.
The minor in Economics requires 18 credit hours of Economics courses, 9 of which must be upper-division (3000+ level). All core courses must be completed with a grade of C or better. As required by the College of Letters and Sciences, students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 in the courses that count towards the minor in order to earn the minor in economics.
