Liberal Arts Minor in Economics (undergraduate)

Liberal Arts Minor in Economics (undergraduate)

The Liberal Arts Minor in Economics is 9 credits and requires that students take:

  • ECO 3100 or ECO 3200
  • 3 additional credits in 3000-level or 4000-level courses in Economics
  • A 3 credit communications-intensive 4000-level capstone course in Economics

It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all prerequisites are met. If in doubt, students should check with an economics advisor to ensure their choices conform to the requirements of this concentration.

With the exception of ECO 4000, ECO 4091, ECO 4092, ECO 4093, and ECO 4094, all other 4000-level courses are communication-intensive courses. Sometimes ECO 4093 (a 3-credit special topics course) may be communication-intensive, depending on the course material. Students are required to check the course description in CUNYfirst.

Below is the list of capstone courses that have been regularly offered in recent years, along with the matching lower-level courses that could constitute an Economics minor.

Capstone Prerequisite Third course
ECO 4100 (Advanced Microeconomics) ECO 3100 (Intermediate Microeconomic Theory) any 3000- or 4000-level economics course
ECO 4200 (Advanced Macroeconomics) ECO 3200 (Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory) any 3000- or 4000-level economics course

ECO 4051 (Financial Econometrics, offered infrequently) ECO 4000 (Statistical Analysis for Economics and Finance) ECO 3100- or ECO 3200

Note: Students should also be aware that not every course will be offered every semester, therefore, they should ensure that the program they select is flexible and are advised to check with the Department of Economics and Finance (VC 10-225, (646) 312-3450) prior to the beginning of each term regarding course availability.

For further information about the courses available and to discuss which programs might be most appropriate to your interests, please call or visit the offices of the Department of Economics and Finance in the Vertical Campus to make an appointment to see one of our advisors:
