A minor in economics is a great companion to any major, all business majors for sure. It’s a great complement to a social science or mathematical science major. A minor in economics also prepares you well for law school or a career in government.
A minor in economics involves 18 credit hours of economics courses. It includes
- ECON 201 Elementary Microeconomics,
- ECON 202 Elementary Macroeconomics,
- 12 credit hours from economics electives with at least 9 credit hours from 300- or 400-level courses.
You can look up complete economics course descriptions on the official Ball State Website.
The minor is open to both non-business and business majors (except those majoring in economics).
Unlike other business 300/400 courses, all economics courses are open to both business majors and non-majors who meet course prerequisites.
