Minor in Economics

Study for a Minor in Economics and learn to approach today’s issues from an ‘Economics perspective’

You will also develop strong analytical skills that can be applied in any workplace – or when working for yourself. Economics underpins business, commerce and most social sciences. Completing a Minor in Economics will add value to your degree.

Economics keeps your options open

Studying Economics as a Minor gives you options. You can complete a Minor in Economics in the BA, BCom, BSc, BAppSc or BTheol programmes. As all Economics papers may count as Arts, Commerce or Science points, a Minor in Economics will not affect the number of non-Arts, non-Commerce or non-Science papers you may include in your BA, BCom or BSc, respectively.

Economics in the natural and physical sciences

Economics can be used to analyse many environmental, health, land-use and new-technology issues. A well-designed Minor in Economics in a degree, majoring in any natural or physical science subjects, provides an alternative perspective on matters directly related your Major.
