The set of courses required for the minor in economics provides an introduction to the core theory in economics and explores some of the issues that economists study. The four core theory courses are taught each term, along with a broad range of applied economics courses. The required courses (totaling 15 credits) are as follows:
Courses in the 0800 series do not count toward the 15 credits required for the minor in economics, and only 3 credits of ECON 1901 - ECON 1903, directed studies, may be applied toward minor requirements. Other than these restrictions, the two additional courses mentioned above may be any of the courses offered by the department.
