The School of Economics offers a Minor in Economics for students in all disciplines at Georgia Tech. The minor program provides a foundation in economic analysis and decision-making that is especially valuable for students in engineering and the natural and physical sciences, as well as students considering graduate work in law, public policy, or business administration. It should also be attractive to students who wish to broaden their education and to better understand the forces that shape the modern world.
The minor requires a minimum of fifteen semester hours in Economics of which nine semester hours must be advanced upper-level courses (numbered 3000 or above) and of which nine semester hours must be taken at Georgia Tech. All courses counting toward the minor must be taken on a letter-grade basis and must be completed with an overall grade point average of at least 2.0. The course catalog provides full Economics minor degree requirements. In order to apply to add a Minor in economics, a student must have completed the Minor Declaration form signed by either School Chair Dr. Laura Taylor or Undergraduate Program Director Dr. Matt Oliver, as well as your major school adviser.
**Please note that courses used in any minor at Georgia Tech may NOT be used to fulfill Areas A-E requirements and courses required by name and number in a student's major degree program may not be used toward the minor. A student may have no more than two minors.
