Minor in Economics
An economy is a system that produces output and distributes it among members of a society. Economics studies show how that system functions and how it can be improved. For a student majoring in another social science, the study of economics is a way to broaden their analysis of society. For a student majoring in business, the study of economics will expand their understanding of the business environment.
