The Economics minor at Loras College provides a basic foundation in economic analysis. Students will gain a good understanding of how economic activities are carried out in markets and everyday life, the causes of business cycles, and the determinants of microeconomic and macroeconomic conditions. The program provides students with tools to evaluate and critique alternative economic policies. Students will also learn to use evidence-based reasoning and apply theories to solve real-world problems in government, business, and non-profit fields as well as in one’s private life.
Students must get PRIOR written permission to transfer in credit once they have matriculated at Loras. Students wishing to take a summer school class on another campus must get written permission from the Dean of the School of Business or their designee BEFORE taking the class. If a student has taken courses on other campuses and then transfers to Loras the Dean of the School of Business or their designee may make a determination of those transfer credits.
Students should complete their math requirement (L.MAT 115 or L.BUS 250 ) by the end of their sophomore year.
