Minor in Economics

A minor in economics will provide you with a solid foundation in the discipline of economics.  The major is designed as preparation for additional graduate education in economics, public administration, and law, but is limited enough in size to allow students to pursue additional areas of study.

Your studies will cover economic activity and growth, determination of income, employment, output, inflation, aggregate demand and supply, money ad banking, monetary and fiscal policies, and international economic issues as well as pricing and output, competition and monopoly, government regulation, current economic problems, and international economic developments.

Advanced theory and applications in macroeconomics will also be covered with the study of aggregate demand and supply, the business cycle, monetary and fiscal policies, international macroeconomic modeling, and more.

The following apply to all minors:

  • A minor must be comprised of 18 credit hours taken at Webster University.
  • No course counted toward a major can also count toward a minor.
  • Students may have a major and a minor within the same department; they may not major and minor within the same area of emphasis.
  • Students must earn a grade of C- or better in any course they wish to apply toward a minor.
