Policies Concerning Minors

  • Course substitutions are not permitted in minors (without Dean's approval).
     
  • No more than two of the six courses constituting a minor may be transferred from other institutions.
     
  • In cases where a minor is related to the student's major, no more than two courses may "overlap" between major and minor requirements.
     
  • Please make sure to check the listed courses for pre-requisites when planning your schedule.
     
  • If a student pursuing a minor in any business program and who has already taken ECON 100, decides to pursue the full major program, that student must take ECON 101 and ECON 102 as required by the major.
     
  • If a student decides to minor in any business program but has already taken ECON 101 (or ECON 102), then that student should not take ECON 100 but rather ECON 102 (or ECON 101) will serve as an acceptable substitute.
     
  • A student may do only one minor in the Busch School of Business and Economics.
