Economics Minor

Admission Requirements

Program admission is limited. Entry is via a formal department application. Students may apply for admission to the minor program once 30 units have been completed, ECON 103 and 105 are completed with at least a C- grade in each course, the minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is met and the ECON program GPA is met.

The department announces the minimum CGPA below which students will not normally be considered for admission to its programs.

Applications with appropriate documentation should be filed with the departmental advisor. Students not accepted upon initial application may reapply.

Continuation in Program

To continue in an economics program, students must maintain a 2.0 CGPA.

Course Information

Access to ECON 402, 403, 435 and 499W is restricted to students who have excelled in their studies (see ECON course descriptions). These advanced courses are recommended for students wishing to pursue more challenging work or who plan an additional degree.
