Minoring in Economics


The exposure to economic analysis (theoretical and empirical) makes a minor in economics attractive to many job recruiters and graduate schools because of the development of student critical thinking.

Economics Minor

The economics minor is offered to any students who desire to increase their understanding of economic theory and practice to complement their majors with the strong analytical skills. Students have opportunities to conduct independent research and engage in globally-related activities through coursework and study abroad at SWOSU (i.e., Study Abroad - London; Study Abroad – Germany, etc.).
