Financial Economics Minor Requirements
The main objective of the minor is to provide students with training in the conceptual framework, guiding concepts, and technical tools of modern finance. The broader goal is to provide insights into the large and the small—the macro and micro—of how this framework helps us understand the workings of the economy.
The minor in financial economics includes five required courses and two elective courses chosen from the list below.
|AS.180.101||Elements of Macroeconomics||3|

|Select two of the following:||6|

The minor is open to all majors. A minimum grade of C- or better is required for all courses and they may not be taken satisfactory/unsatisfactory. One cannot take both the economics and financial economics minor. For economics majors, there is a restriction on double-counting: two courses counting toward the minor cannot also count toward the economics major.
