Diverse Applications for an Interconnected World

Minoring in Economics will develop your understanding of economic processes, including the production, consumption, and transfer of goods and services on microeconomic and macroeconomic scales. Practice advising organizations and learn how to formulate national policies, predict and analyze policy and market feedback, adapt to business trends, and distribute scarce resources for individuals, businesses, governments, and societies.

Specific classes cover the development and role of the banking system; factors that determine the size of national economy, inflation, unemployment, monetary policies, capitalism; and ways to efficiently use resources and distribute income.

With a minor in Economics, you will become familiar with the important economic, financial, and market terminology and processes necessary for majors that need to make informed decisions about the motion of people, capital, and goods across the globe.
