Economics - Minor

Economics is the study of markets – how goods and services are produced, distributed, and consumed – and the study of how people use resources and respond to incentives. An economics minor is a great addition to any major! For example, economics would pair well with a public health, public policy, sociology, political science, or business major. Studying economics at St. Kate's will challenge students to think critically and apply a rigorous empirical lens to a wide range of issues. 

An economics minor will provide students with the skills to understand and analyze complex issues and participate in evidence-based decision making. In addition to learning fundamental economic concepts in the Principles of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics courses, students can work with a professor to select the upper-level economics courses that best suit their needs and aspirations. Upper-level economics courses include Development Economics: Examining Poverty and Inequality, International Economics, Quantitative Impact Evaluation, or Discrimination: Economics and Politics of Race and Gender, to name a few.

This minor is offered in the College for Women only.
