The Economics Minor involves the completion of Principles of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics, along with four other 300- or 400-level elective courses. The Principles courses represent the building blocs and expose students to a wide array of basic economic concepts. Students then expand upon these ideas throughout the four upper level courses with direct applicability in the fields of American Economic History, Economic Development, Environmental Economics, Health or Labor Economics, Industrial Organization, International Trade, International Finance, or Money and Banking among many others.

The critical-thinking skills and analytical tools gathered as an economics minor can easily be combined with virtually any other discipline and confers the student a unique viewpoint on his or her main field of study.
