Economics (Minor)

18 Credits  |   Main Campus

The Economics program at Trinity combines the traditional cornerstones of economics with the distinct emphases of Trinity’s mission.

Basic economic ideas should be part of every educated person’s toolkit.  At Trinity, the Economics program strives to provide students with access to current microeconomic and macroeconomic paradigms, so that they can apply these models to solve real-world problems.  Abstract theory is part of this endeavor, but the program is also careful to place economic theory in its historical and institutional context.  By looking at the field in this way, the Economics program aligns with Trinity’s mission to incorporate diverse insights on gender and race, while developing  literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking in students.

The Economics program supports a minor in the College of Arts and Sciences.
