Minor in Economics

Arts and Science majors with a scientific mindset may appreciate a minor in economics. Economics’ logical, ordered approach to problem solving can support or complement practically any other field of study.

The primary goal of the economics faculty is to provide its students, the University, and the community with an understanding of economic theory and practice through quality teaching and advising, significant research, and appropriate community involvement.

What does this mean for you?

An economics minor will provide you with a solid base for a variety of fields. It is an ideal preparation for careers in business and for many graduate programs.

Not only will you learn about product and resource pricing, interest-rate determination, and taxation policies, you’ll gain a firm background in the liberal arts, sciences, and communications.

We’ll teach you how to take the skills you’ll learn in the classroom and apply them to both your career and your life. You’ll learn both in and out of the classroom, being challenged to see how your gifts and talents can make a difference in our world.

You’ll learn from professionals that are leaders in their fields, who will advise and mentor you throughout your four years at Carroll.
