The perfect minor for any major

Alfred University's economics minor is a highly valued complement to any major, but particularly for those who are interested in policy analysis, activism, employment relations, and business. An economics minor is also highly regarded by potential employers, and graduate and law schools because it is a rigorous analytical discipline.
