Requirements for the secondary teaching minor in economics

A minimum of 20 credits in economics and business is required for the secondary teaching minor in economics, distributed as follows:


Students are advised to take MIS 1000  early in the education program, as the course is likely to be helpful in many courses involving information technology. They should also obtain a supplemental course pack (that covers issue analysis) from the secondary education minor adviser in the department.

Generally, application to OU STEP requires a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in courses in the major and the minor. To progress into the internship year, students admitted to the OU STEP must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.00 in both their major and minor coursework, with no single course grade below 2.0.

Second undergraduate degree candidates completing the minor may be required to take additional courses at Oakland University beyond the stated minimums. Students should consult with the chair in the Department of Economics or with the College of Arts and Sciences advising office.
