Economics Minor


Requirements for the Minor


  1. ECON 051 PZ -Principles of Macroeconomics  
  2. ECON 052 PZ -Principles of Microeconomics  
  3. ECON 091 PZ -Statistics  
  4. One Economic Theory course [either ECON 104 PZ -Macroeconomic Theory  or
  5. ECON 105 PZ -Microeconomic Theory  
  6. Two upper-level courses in Economics

All courses for the minor must be taken for a letter grade.  The 6 courses for the minor must be separate from the courses in the student’s major.  If there is overlap in specific required courses (as is the case with some majors), additional upper-level courses must be added.  Please consult with an Economics advisor for more detail.

Completion of MATH 030 PZ  or equivalent is required before taking Macroeconomic Theory and Microeconomic Theory. Upper-level courses are those that both (1) have Economics 51 and/or Economics 52 as a prerequisite and (2) are numbered 100 or above. Please consult with an Economics advisor in advance for courses requiring only Economics 50 as a prerequisite.  Accounting and Business Law courses do not fulfill the upperlevel elective course requirement. Students planning to study abroad or wanting to transfer in courses taken at institutions outside of the Claremont Colleges consortium should consult with an Economics advisor beforehand. At most one course for the minor can be taken at an institution outside of the Claremont Colleges consortium (including abroad).
