Minor in Behavioral Economics and Business

About the Minor

Decision-makers are drawing from a variety of fields to inform their choices, and social scientists are increasingly reaching across disciplines to model human behavior. Economists, for example, have brought insight from psychology into their field and created a new field within economics—behavioral economics. The minor in Behavioral Economics and Business offers students the opportunity to learn about decision-making from a variety of perspectives and should be of interest to those who wish to broaden their understanding of choices made by individuals, firms, governments, and other agents.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.
