Minor in Economics

Economics is related in important ways to many other disciplines. Because of this, students often find that adding an economics minor is a good way to round out their studies. The economics minor is flexible and can be molded to fit your interests. Students may pursue specialized study in economic theory, money and banking, public finance, labor economics, international trade, economic development, transportation, econometrics, regional economics, industrial organization, and economic systems.

Requirements: Total of 18 credit hours in economics. Econ 110 and Econ 120 (or AgEcon 120 or 121) are required, plus four 500-level or higher economics courses. A cumulative GPA of 2.0 for all courses in the minor is required to graduate with a minor in economics. No more than 6 credit hours of transfer credit may be used for a minor.

  • Econ 110, Principles of Macroeconomics (3 credit hours)
  • Econ 120, Principles of Microeconomics or Agec 120 or 121 (3 credit hours)
  • Four 500-level or higher economics courses (12 credit hours)

To declare an economics minor, please visit the economics office at 327 Waters Hall anytime to fill out the economics minor form or fill out the form below and bring it by the economics department. We are open from 8:00am-5:00pm, closed for lunch from 12:00-1:00pm. Once a student has filled out and turned in the paperwork to declare an economics minor, we will notify the Registrar's Office and they will add the econ minor to the student's KSIS account. You will then be able to track your progress by running 'DARS report' in KSIS.

The semester you intend to graduate you must apply for graduation in KSIS for the economics minor. We are not able to process your economics minor unless you have done this. You can find the instructions here. This can only be done AFTER you have gone through the steps of declaring an economics minor.
