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 Economics of Social Issues, Principles of Microeconomics or Principles of 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 International Economics: Trade and Immigration, 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. At least three of the five courses counted for the minor must be taken in residence at St. Catherine University.
