Economics Minor Program
The Economics Minor provides students with a solid comprehension of the dynamics of human action in the marketplace, including how and why resources are used to produce the goods and services consumers demand. Students will learn the basics of economics theory, including theory of the good, supply and demand, profit and loss, private property and entrepreneurship, fiscal and monetary policy, international trade and globalization.
Economics Minor Program Highlights
In addition to immersing students in the study of these foundational topics, the University of Mary’s economics minor draws upon the perennial wisdom tradition to help students understand how the production of goods and services contributes to human flourishing as well as the limits of wealth creation in the achievement of everlasting happiness. The program also emphasizes the contribution of Catholic intellectual tradition to the development of modern economics and attempts to combine modern economic theory with the study of traditional political economy and history of economic thought.
In addition to coursework, students in the Economics Minor will have an opportunity to participate in discussion clubs and reading groups.
