The minor in Finance is a six-course interdisciplinary minor that gives students a
foundation in the formal economics of financial markets and supplements that foundation
with important mathematical and philosophical tools. The courses in the minor introduce
the study of intertemporal pricing, theoretical and empirical analysis of decision-making
under uncertainty, and both positive and normative issues in settings of asymmetric information.
The Minor in Finance requires the completion of six (6) courses as follows (a minimum grade of C- or higher is required):
Students wishing to receive academic credit for an economics or finance-related internship should discuss the internship with their advisor prior to seeking credit. Generally, if the work is relevant to a student's studies in economics or finance, it may be possible to earn 1/2 pass/fail credit. The credit will not count toward the major (or minor), but will count as general credit towards graduation. Credit is awarded upon completion of the internship and the submission of an acceptable paper connecting the internship work with a topic in economics or finance. To avoid any misunderstandings, any student interested in receiving credit for an internship should submit a proposal to the advisor BEFORE the start of the internship and get the proposal approved.
For questions about the Minor in Finance, please contact Professor of the Practice Christopher Manos, who serves as program advisor.
