This minor examines a range of economic analyses and schools of thought, allowing students to develop a more in-depth understanding of what work economists do, what economists study, and how economists see the same phenomena in related and different ways. Students will attain a more careful understanding of the economy and their place within it through exploration of the relationships between people and the institutions involved with economic decision making, such as laws, practices, and political organizations.
The minor consists of five courses (20 credits). EC 203 is required. The remaining 16 credits are chosen from the following courses, with at least three courses from List A, including one course at the 300 or 400 level. Students may choose one course (4 credits) from List B to count toward the minor, but it is not required. At least two of which must be taken at Emerson.
