The minor in economics is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of economic concepts and processes. The capstone course gives students the opportunity to apply the tools of economics to an issue central to their majors. Although open to all, the minor is especially relevant for students in pre-law, government, journalism, and psychology programs.
