Students also learn a variety of economic policies and develop a set of analytical skills that are valuable for the marketplace. An economics minor is useful to students in all disciplines. For students who are not majoring in economics, the minor in economics boosts their academic major and prepares them for successful careers or graduate programs in a variety of disciplines.
