EXPLORE GLOBAL MARKETS AND ECONOMIC THEORY WITH THE ECONOMICS MINOR
The Economics Minor is an excellent complement to majors like politics, history, mathematics, accounting, and business administration. We’ll equip you with a core of economic theory and a sampling of the many fields of economics.
Guided by our renowned, approachable faculty, you’ll hone your ability to wrestle with unfamiliar problems and ethical issues and the communication skills needed to share information with others. You’ll receive plenty of hands-on research opportunities, too. All of this takes place within small, discussion-based classes, a hallmark of the liberal arts tradition.
