The Economic Policy Analysis minor helps students who want to work in politics and government to handle questions like: how can we get wages to increase, when should the government stimulate the economy, when should interest rates be reduced by the central bank, how can we improve women’s earnings, what can be done to solve the energy crisis, and how do we stop urban sprawl. Using concrete tools and real-life examples from true policymakers in labor and in politics on and off the field, our students learn to solve complex social problems.

Important policy reminder: Current College policy states that a maximum of 3 courses from a student’s academic major can be used to fulfill the requirements of a minor. For example, if a Business major earns the credits for the required Business courses of Principles of Macroeconomics, Economic Statistics and Corporation Finance, only THREE of these courses can be used to satisfy the requirements of an Economics Minor.
