Taking a largely microeconomic perspective, this economics minor provides students with insight to how economies function, and how public policy and the way organisations behave affect social, economic and environmental problems. Students develop critical thinking skills by examining competing economic theories, and applying these to economic events, outcomes and government policies.  In addition, students will gain sought-after skills in evaluating and developing cost-benefit analyses for specific projects.
