Economics Minor

An economics minor is a way for students from other schools and departments to learn about fundamental economic concepts and issues while diversifying their analytical skill sets. As a highly interdisciplinary field, economics can be useful for all students interested in supplementing their existing major. Most economics minors have their primary degrees in public policy and political science, but countless others come from both the sciences and the humanities.
