  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2017
  • Required credits in this minor: 25 to 43
Economics is a useful minor for students majoring in business, engineering, statistics, computer science, mathematics, and all of the social sciences. Minors are available in six subfields: general, economic theory, econometrics, international trade and development, applied microeconomics and monetary theory. All subfields are designed to complement study in other academic disciplines.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
ECON 1101 & 1102 are basic pre-requisites for all upper-division ECON coursework.
