Declaring a Minor 

Declaring our minor consists of five easy steps:

  1. Select and register for your Econ courses!
  2. Download the "Add a Minor" form (https://registrar.gatech.edu/info/change-minor-form). For the general Econ Minor, please indicate "Economics" in the Minor field; for MESA minor, indicate "MESA".
  3. Fill out the form and send it to Dr. Urmanbetova to sign (aselia@gatech.edu). Once both minor and major advisors sign the form, your major advisor or you should submit the form to the Registrar's Office. In light of Covid-19, you can fill out the form electronically.
  4. Subscribe to Econ Minors to stay in touch with the ECON Community.
  5. Finally, when having completed all requirements, fill out the last form -- Approved Program of Study -- and submit to your Major advisor and Dr. Urmanbetova for signatures. The signed form must be submitted to the registrar along with your application to graduate.
