A minor in economics is awarded to any student who completes at least five economics courses, as outlined below.

This great flexibility permits students to design their own program around a series of economics courses of interest to them. Students interested in the minor should submit a completed Application for a Program of Minor Study.

Members of the economics faculty assist students in designing their individualized minor. It is recommended that students begin their minor with one or both of the two required introductory-level courses: ECO 1500 and ECO 1510.
