Minors allow a student to pursue her interest in an area in addition to her major. Although all students must complete a major, a minor is optional. However, a minor can help a student demonstrate competency in an area to employers or to graduate schools.
The Economics minor gives students a background in microeconomics and macroeconomics. Students take introductory micro and macro, at least one intermediate theory course, a course in statistics, and at least three electives.
The Business Management minor enables students to combine a traditional liberal arts major in the humanities, fine arts, or natural sciences with a minor that hones the critical skills sought by businesses and non-profit organizations. The business management minor develops foundational competencies in accounting and organizational management.
