Economics as a Complement
The versatility of economics means it can make an excellent complement to your existing degree. A joint-degree or a minor can offer you a secondary field of study, an additional type of expertise and skills, and a way to pursue personal interests.
We currently offer a Financial Economics major, which is a partnership between the Economics and Finance majors. We are also currently working on developing a joint degree program with Political Science and another with the Mathematics department.
A minor is also an excellent option for students looking to increase their skills and employability.
To attain a Minor in Economics, you must complete 6 classes, or 18 credits total. Principles of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics can count towards general education and are prerequisites for all business students. Beyond these two classes, students select four additional economics courses from the course offerings to fulfill their minor. For many majors, classes can can dually and can fulfill an elective requirement within your major.
