The Humanomics Minor is broadly organized by three questions:
What makes a rich nation rich?
What makes a good person good?
What do these questions have to do with one another?
The Socratic Dialogue in the required core courses provides students with an opportunity to personalize their inquiry of these three question by analyzing and synthesizing texts from the concurrent reading of three disciplines and by prodcucing original interdisciplinary texts. Electives enable students to study a variety of supporting topics to gain expertise in the synthesis of ecomomics and humanities.
Economics, English, or Philosophy majors must complete 12 credits from the list of elective courses that are outside of their major or major's primary discipline. This includes Individual Studies (299/499) and Student-Faculty Research/Creative Activity (291/491).
Business Administration majors must complete 12 credits from the list of elective courses excluding ECON 200, ECON 201, and ECON 374.
Accounting majors must complete 12 credits from the list of elective courses excluding ECON 200 and ECON 201.
For questions, students should contact the Associate Dean, Academic Programs, Argyros School of Business and Economics.
