The economics minor is designed to complement the different choices that students have made in terms of a major field of study. The range of major areas of study that economics minor pursue is wide. Whether in combination with a business degree, international studies, political science, sociology, English, actuarial science, natural sciences or humanities, an economics minor is a valuable and sought-after course of study. The minor in economics equips students with analytical and problem-solving skills that prove to be an excellent supplement to just about every major field of study.
Students choosing a minor in economics are required to complete the two principles courses (Microeconomics and Macroeconomics), one theory course and three electives of their choice. We encourage students minoring economics to consult with the chairperson of the economics department in determining which electives best suit each student's area of interest. More details are listed below.
For minors, a minimum of twelve credits in economics must be completed in the Department of Economics at the University of St. Thomas.
