The Minor in Applied Economics gives students a foundational understanding of economics. Students are first grounded in business, accounting and finance fundamentals for context, and then explore macro and micro economics and history of economic thought, and take a deeper dive into the economic issues that are relevant to the healthcare field. For students who are interested in further study in economics, the minor provides many of the foundational and introductory courses that apply to the bachelor's degree in economics.

Students may earn a minor in the field by completing the following 21 credit hours and any required prerequisites provided none of the courses is required in the student's major.
