Economics Minor

This minor can be declared through the Department of  Economics and Business .

The Department of Economics and Business offers a minor in economics. The economics minor is intended for cadets in other curricula who wish to supplement their major with a further study of economic theory. Cadets are required to complete EC 201 , EC 202 , EC 303 *, and four additional economics electives at the 300 or 400 level (these may include EC 300  and EC 330 ). To pursue a minor in economics, cadets must obtain the permission of the Head of the Department of Economics and Business and the head of the department of their major field. The necessary application form can be obtained from the Head of the Department of Economics and Business. Cadets must maintain an overall 2.0 in the minor and complete all required course work with a grade of “C” or higher. All required courses must be taken at VMI. In addition, no more than two elective courses can be taken at another school.

*Competency in statistics can be demonstrated by receiving a “C” or higher in MA 105  and MA 106  or MA 220  or MA 307  or BI 201  in lieu of EC 303 .
