Undergraduate Minor in Economics

The Department of Economics offers two minor options: the Economics minor and the Econometrics minor.

The Economics minor is useful for students interested in developing a foundation in Economic theory to complement their business, engineering, computer science, or social science majors.

Both minors require the following courses to declare:

  • ECON 1101 - Principles of Microeconomics
  • ECON 1102 - Principles of Macroeconomics
  • MATH 1271 - Calculus I

In order to take upper-level Economics courses, students first need to declare their minor. Interested students can make an appointment at econ.appointments.umn.edu.
