Why get an Economics Minor?
The objective of an Economics minor is to provide an avenue for acquiring a basic understanding of economics that can complement the student’s major course of study. The student who successfully completes a minor in economics will have a strong grasp of economic theory. This will help her/him to understand and analyze contemporary economic issues and events such as health care, social security, taxes, welfare, environmental policy, international trade, economic growth, business cycles, and the role of government policies. In addition, study of economics provides strong rational decision-making skills.
