Economics Minor

Requirements for the Minor (15 credits)


  • Economics Minor is not available to Economics Majors.
  • A grade of C- or better must be earned in any course used to fulfill the minor. Courses for the minor may not be taken as Pass/No Pass.
  • Transfer credit for courses that are a direct match will be accepted for the minor. Undistributed transfer credit (i.e. ECON 2XXXX) will not be accepted. To see how courses from other institutions transfer to Purdue’s Transfer Credit Course Equivalence Guide at https://selfservice.mypurdue.purdue.edu/prod/bzwtxcrd.p_select_info.
  • Economics courses (not Principles) completed as part of an approved study abroad program may be used to fulfill the Economics Upper-Division Electives requirement.
  • Economics majors have priority in registering for Economics upper-division courses. Students seeking a Minor in Economics are not allowed to register for upper-division courses until after Krannert registration restrictions are lifted. Space in upper-division courses is not guaranteed. More information lifting of restrictions can be found at http://www.krannert.purdue.edu/undergraduate/current-students/nonkrannert-students.asp.
  • Only one course can be shared between any major, minor or concentration
