Economics is highly complementary with a number of other disciplines and some students may choose to minor in economics while pursuing a major in another field. Students often decide to minor in economics after having already taken several economics courses and realizing that a few more courses will satisfy the minor requirements.

  • Minors must earn a minimum grade of C in each core course (CR/NC grading is permitted for core courses).
