Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Programs

The minor in Economics is open to all Morgan students, regardless of their majors. The minor in Economics offers knowledge and skills to enhance employment opportunities for students from Business and Management as well as a wide variety of majors from across the campus. Within the minor, students can concentrate on either quantitative or policy dimensions of Economics; covering economic, political, and social aspects of the field. The minor complements a wide range of majors offered at Morgan. Students who chose to minor in Economics must complete the following course requirements with a grade of “C” or better:

Prerequisites: MATH 113  (It is a prerequisite for MATH 114 , and may help some other 300-400 level economics courses). The minor in Economics is designed to enhance students’ understanding of the concepts of economics and business. Students are required to successfully complete 18 credit hours including ECON 211 /ECON 212  .

Required Courses for a Minor in Economics


* If a student declares Economics as minor, they may not use ECON 211  and/or ECON 212  as part of the graduation needed for the Social and Behavioral Sciences portion within the General Ed requirement.

**A student may choose any ECON courses at the 300- or 400 level and satisfy the elective requirement. However, this precludes ECON 311 - Principles and Methods of Probability and Statistics , and ECON 312 - Applied Methods in Probability and Statistics . A student in consultation and approval of the Department Chairperson may gain approval to use a course from another department to satisfy this portion of the requirement. However, in no event, shall a student use a course offered by his/ her major department for credit towards the minor in Economics.

The area in which the student wants to specialize can vary; and the electives can be tailored to suit his or her interest and choice. Areas of specialization that can be supported include, but not limited to, the following: Public Policy & Economics, International Economics, Money and Banking, Mathematical Economics and Urban and Regional Economics or others as may be available from time to time or approved by the department.
