The Minor in Economics is offered by the Department of Economics. Students are exposed to the economist's way of thinking about social problems and behavior.

Minors are awarded only at the time of completion of the bachelor's degree and cannot be awarded either as a stand-alone program of study or after completion of the first bachelor's degree.
