- Economics (BA)*
*You may not combine the economics minor with this major.
Minoring in economics will provide you with a deep understanding of topics like credit, banking, finance and investment, as well as ethical considerations in economics. This will empower you to analyze economic activities, make informed decisions, and understand the intricate workings of the market system.
In this program, you’ll get the chance to study a range of subjects that explore different facets of economics. Your curriculum could include environmental economics, which will teach you about resource allocation decisions and optimal environmental policies. Alternatively, you could explore intermediate macroeconomic and microeconomic theory, analyzing factors influencing income, employment, output, pricing, and market outcomes.
The Economics minor offers courses that focus on managerial economics, international economic policy, econometrics, public finance, urban and regional economics, and the economics of terrorism. Each one will broaden your scope of insight and help you become a well-rounded professional working within today’s dynamic economic landscape.
By completing the economics minor, you will gain an understanding of economic principles and the ability to apply economic analysis to real-world issues. You will develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, enhance your quantitative abilities, and sharpen your understanding of economic phenomena.
