Minor in Economics

A minor in economics is a logical supplement to programs in business, engineering, technology, health services, science, and the social sciences. A knowledge of economic theory, economic institutions, and how economic policy is formed is necessary for students preparing for careers in law, science, government, or any area that uses the scarce resources of our society.

  • completion of properly distributed credit hour requirements for the baccalaureate degree in effect when the student was admitted to their home school,
  • completion of 15 credit hours, with a minimum grade of C in each course,
  • nine (9) credit hours of the minor must be completed at IUPUI,
