The economics program area offers a minor in economics that allows students to go deeper in learning how to apply the basic concepts gained from taking the principles of macroeconomics and microeconomics. The economics minor provides a balance of theory and practice in order to increase students' ability to solve problems in their fields. The economics minor is offered primarily to the following categories of students: students from business and management fields in the College of Management, students from human services and public administration, and students from the liberal arts who desire to increase their knowledge of economics.
