The Economics minor studies the way individuals and societies choose to use scarce resources in both the private and public sectors. Concepts are applied to nearly every aspect of human activity from ensuring food safety; supporting transportation systems and health care services; shaping international trade policy, government monetary and fiscal policy; and evaluating political, social, environmental and other issues.
