A highly customizable minor in economics from the Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business may serve to complement a major in another discipline such as the health professions, engineering, political science, public policy or law.
Through the Chaifetz School’s economics curriculum, students will learn to apply theory and problem-solving skills while balancing public policy with the choices faced by today’s society. Students receive a solid introductory background in the field, taking core classes in macro- and microeconomics, econometrics and business statistics. Students may pursue a wide variety of elective courses based on their personal interests. The economics minor is available to both business and non-business students.
Additional prerequisite: MATH 1200 College Algebra (3 cr)
Additional prerequisite: MATH 1320 Survey of Calculus (3 cr) or MATH 1510 Calculus I (4 cr)
Students must maintain a minimum 2.00 grade point average (GPA) in all courses used to fulfill minor requirements. If the minor GPA falls below a 2.00, students will have one semester to increase their minor GPA to a 2.00 or they will not be allowed to enroll in 3000 and 4000 level minor courses.
Students can complete all or part of the economics minor at SLU’s campus in Madrid.
