The minor in Economics offers students a problem solving discipline to foster their intellectual and career development. It provides students a balanced and broad educational background and prepares them to choose from a wide range of career alternatives, as well as provides an excellent background for graduate studies in such fields as economics, business, law, and education.
The curriculum in Economics explores the economic decisions of individuals, businesses, governments, and other institutions. It examines the nature of economic activity, why it takes place, and how it affects everyone's lives. The program includes elective courses that enable students to tailor their educational program to meet personal needs and interests. The study of economics also helps students develop a logical and rigorous thought process, provides the decision- making tools that can be applied to personal as well as business decisions, and can be used to address the many economic decisions they will face along life's path.
