Enhance your major
When you consider the contributions by economists, it's easy to understand the direct benefits of an economics minor, and there are indirect benefits as well. It's impossible to know what talents and skills you'll need to successfully navigate life’s challenges, but there is a strong likelihood that you will be called upon to deal with economic issues.
Journalists, engineers, architects, salesmen and many other job fields benefit from learning the principles of economics. This minor is a great fit for majors in criminal justice, environmental sciences, health care management, history, journalism, political science, sociology and more.
For business majors
Students pursuing a business degree are required to complete two economics courses (ECO 155 and ECO 165) and a statistics course (QBA 237), all of which contribute to an economics minor. Only three additional classes in economics are required to complete the requirements for a minor in economics. Because of this, many business majors opt for a minor in economics to accompany their business degree. If you are a business major and you select this option, you will acquire economic tools that will complement your education in business and make you a more valuable future employee.
