Economics - Minor
The study of economics provides a rigorous structure for decision-making, whether on academic topics or day-to-day activities such as how to divide roommate expenses or how to allocate time between study and recreation. Economics teaches students how to think rationally about problems, a skill that is essential in any profession.
A minor in economics provides knowledge and information that will make a student a better-informed consumer and participant in the world economy. It also provides a basis for a better understanding of world events.
