Students in the Economics minor will learn not only how to evaluate real-world economic decision-making, but how to apply economic tools to real-world problems. A key part of this minor: A hands-on, student-driven research project designed to demonstrate critical thinking skills—and understanding of key economic principles.
Upon completion of the Economics minor, students will be able to:
- Apply analytical tools to evaluate natural resource and environmental issues in an economic approach.
- Evaluate and solve real-world economic situations using game theory techniques.
- Understand and analyze domestic and global macroeconomic fluctuations and trends in a systematic way.
