Political Economy Minor
Students interested in pursuing a career in government, business, communications, or the law can add a breadth of perspective through the political economy minor.
The political economy minor consists of five courses (20 credits total). The minimum grade requirement is C- per course. Any grade lower than a C- will not count toward the minor. Students wishing to use transfer credits from abroad or other universities should meet with the political economy minor supervisor, Stephen Pimpare, to determine eligibility toward the minor.
