Why add a minor in economics?
When you study economics, you'll investigate the subject from two perspectives. The view from 30,000 feet, or macroeconomics, covers society-wide issues such as inflation, unemployment and economic growth. You'll also study the field on a closer, or microeconomic, level, learning to analyze product pricing, competition between businesses in an industry, and the effects of regulation.
Because you'll perform wide-ranging quantitative and qualitative analysis of economic and social forces as an Economics student, this minor is a great launching pad for careers in law, journalism and other fields that demand an understanding of individuals and society - as well as, of course, careers in academia and as professional economist.
