Economics Major and Minor

The Economics major at UNC will prepare you for your future career and allow you to apply what you learn to real-world situations. You can choose from a broad selection of courses and focus your studies in an area of economics that interests you.
We also offer a minor in Economics that allows you to gain a foundation in economic principles. An Economics minor will compliment many majors, including political science, international relations, anthropology and sociology.

Because we don’t have a graduate program in Economics, we are able to focus solely on our undergraduate students and provide them a wide range of research opportunities. You’ll be able to gain valuable experience by participating in faculty research, directed studies, honors theses and internships.
