Economics Minor

Whatever your major may be, you can benefit from studying markets, cultures, and governments from the perspective of economics grounded in the liberal arts.

Learning more about the theory and application of economic principles may help you gain entry to positions in business, non-government organizations, public policy, and social advocacy. For example, students who graduate with economics backgrounds find themselves working on Wall Street, in Washington D.C., and throughout all the state capitals.

The Cedar Crest College economics minor provides an introduction to consumer and producer theory, plus closer examination of advanced topics such as labor, financial markets, and economic geography.
