Economics - MINOR

Effective Fall 2020, Johnson & Wales University will complete its transition from a term calendar to a semester calendar. Starting with the 2020–21 catalog, all programs will represent course requirements in semester credit hours rather than quarter credit hours. Students who started on terms and will finish their degree requirements on semesters should consult with their assigned academic counselor in Student Academic Services or faculty advisor on semester transition academic planning.

The College of Arts & Sciences offers minors that enhance and strengthen the qualifications of graduates.  They are intended to give students opportunities to develop expertise in an area that complements their major program.  Real world applications are embedded in the minors.  

Economics is more than just a narrow study of costs and benefits. It is a meaningful way of thinking about choice, human behavior, and the market process. The world is complex and changing; thoughtful planning is needed to ensure success. Employers want individuals with critical thinking skills. Furthermore, businesses and entrepreneurs need individuals that are equipped to respond to an increasingly globalized and interdependent business environment.
