Economics Minor

Main page content

An economics minor allows UW Tacoma students to strengthen their facility with economic reasoning and conceptual understanding in a way that complements their studies in their chosen major/concentration. In this way, students can develop their economic reasoning and understanding and apply this knowledge to other areas such as communications, history, business, psychology, social work, sociology and literature.

Note: This minor is not open to students in the Politics, Philosophy and Economics major in SIAS.

All courses in the minor must be completed with cumulative 2.0 GPA. Please see an advisor to discuss details.


The Economics minor requires 25 credits to include the following:

10 credits of core courses:

15 credits from upper-division courses (300 - 400 level) from the economics track of Politics, Philosophy and Economics major (PP&E). Only 5 credits from TBECON 420, TBECON 421 or TBECON 422 may count towards the minor.
