Many students find that a minor in economics complements their major; our minors include students in a very wide variety of majors across many of the colleges at the University. A minor in economics requires 18 credits in economics, divided between nine credits of required courses in economic theory and nine credits of economics free electives. Many students find that after having taken ECON101 and ECON103, a minor can be completed relatively easily and can be fit into the schedules of most majors.

How to Apply
