The minors offered by the School of Economics provide a foundation in economic analysis and decision-making that is especially valuable for students in engineering, the natural and physical sciences, as well as students considering graduate work in law, public policy, or business administration. Our innovative STEM-related minor program is open to all students at Georgia Tech.

Students can choose to take a general Minor in Economics or Microeconomics in Strategic Analysis (MESA). The economics minor can even be completed during summer courses in the Summer Minor in Economics.

Our most popular classes include but are not limited to: Game Theory, Behavioral Economics, Economics of Strategy and Information, Network Economics, International Trade Theory and Policy, International Financial Economics, International Energy Markets, Law and Economics of the World Trading System, Urban Economics, Environmental Economics and many more.

Declaring a Minor 

Declaring our minor consists of four easy steps:

  1. Register for the ECON courses you want!​
    • ECON Minor courses can not be double-counted with any Core Area A-E classes, but they can be used as Free Electives.
    • If you take ECON 2105 or ECON 2106, you can not count ECON 2100 or ECON 2101 towards the minor.
  2. Fill out the DocuSign Add a Minor Form, it will be automatically sent to your major and minor advisors. Once both minor and major advisors sign the form, the DocuSign form will be automatically submitted to the Registrar's Office.​
    • In the form, make sure to check "Add Minor" and if it is your first minor, in "Primary Minor" include the name of the minor (ECON or MESA). For the "Catalog Year" include the current year. Make sure to include the emails for both Major and Minor advisors.
  3. Subscribe to Econ Minors email list to stay in touch with our awesome ECON Community.​
  4. At the start of your last semester, fill out the last form—Approved Program of Study—and submit it to Davis Palubeski and your major advisor for signatures. The signed form must be submitted to the registrar along with your application to graduate.​

Any questions about the minors should be directed to Davis Palubeski.
