Minor in Economics

Students wishing to minor in economics must take a minimum of 18 credits in economics and the last 12 credit hours in residence. Courses must include ECONOM 1014 and ECONOM 1015 (or ECONOM 1051 or ECONOM 1051H instead of the previous two courses*) and ECONOM 3251 or ECONOM 4351 plus three economics electives, including at least one at the 4000 level. All required courses must be completed with a grade of C or above; grades of C- or below will not be accepted. Students who take both ECONOM 3251 and ECONOM 4351 will receive credit for only one of these courses.

Students pursuing the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Economics are not eligible to earn the Economics minor.


A minor may be earned with 17 credits in economics by students who take ECONOM 1051H rather than ECONOM 1014 (ECONOM 1024) and ECONOM 1015; but not by students who take ECONOM 1051. The one credit hour reduction is exclusively for students who take the Honors section of ECONOM 1051.
