Minor in Economics
Requirements for the economics minor are as follows:
- 180.101 and 180.102 Elements of Macro and Micro
- Four elective courses at the 200 or 300 level
If you receive AP credit for either 180.101 or 180.102 you may not count those credits toward the 6-course requirement. No substitution of courses in other departments for economics electives may be made. Students who use exam credits to satisfy the AS.180.101 Elements of Macroeconomics and/or AS.180.102 Elements of Microeconomics requirements must take additional courses in the department to reach a total of 6 courses.
Study-abroad and transfer courses are approved on a case-by-case basis. In general you will be required to complete at least four of your six economics courses within the Department of Economics at Hopkins.
