Major/Minor Image

Economics students gain understanding and analysis skills of systems related to the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. This is a great minor if you’re interested in the best use of scarce resources and the interplay between politics, law, tax policy, and public policy that affects us every day.

Why should I study economics?

Core courses in this minor will complement nearly any major by giving you an overview of business and economics principles that can be applied to any organization or corporation.

What can I do with this degree?

Our alumni integrate their economics minor with their major of study and continue on to careers in:

  • Healthcare
  • Government
  • Marketing
  • Management
  • Business

What skills will I develop?

  • Presentation skills
  • Problem-solving
  • Metrics
  • Critical thinking about societal problems
  • Logical reasoning
  • Research

You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in the R.E.A.L. Experience—a program specifically designed to help you gain the relevant, hands-on experience employers desire—so that when you graduate, you’ll be as impressive in practice as you are on paper.

What unique experiences or opportunities will I have?

  • Group projects and presentations
  • Integration of Christian values into economics principles
  • Opportunities to practice your economics skills
