Economics is an essential tool for understanding the complexities of modern society. Economics analyzes how people with limited resources make choices and how we might make better choices. A minor in economics is an extremely flexible and marketable choice. Whether a student's primary interest is in business, communications, policy, data management, international studies, or engineering, a minor in economics provides an additional edge in the workplace.
