This minor provides a well-rounded education, allowing students to seamlessly integrate economic principles into any industry. Students develop the ability to apply economic concepts to real-world scenarios, enhancing their contributions to professional endeavors. With its universal applicability, an Economics minor equips students to reach their full potential, influencing business model decisions and fostering economic literacy among consumers and employees. 

A minor course of study provides the student with significant experience in a discipline organized around skills, methodology, and subject matter. To gain the greatest value from their academic experience, students are encouraged to select minors that complement their degree program and/or other minors that they are pursuing.

The student becomes subject to the requirements of the minor as stated in the catalog that are in effect at the time the minor is declared. The department/program chair responsible for a particular minor determines how students fulfill deficits in credits for a minor and certifies that students are qualified to receive the minor.
