The Economics minor provides students with the ability to analyze a broad range of socioeconomic phenomena and policy. Regulation, environmental protection, economic growth and development, the distribution of income, inflation, and the level of employment are the basics of economics. Economics contains the theoretical core for business finance, accounting, and marketing and provides a solid foundation for graduate work in business administration and law.
Students must attain a 2.0 or higher in each course that serves as a prerequisite to a subsequent Business course. (Refer to the course description for specific prerequisites.) Failure to attain a 2.0 in prerequisite courses may lengthen the time to graduation.
