what's a good minor that complements economics?

<p>anyone know of any good ones? </p>

<p>No computer science please.</p>

<p>Ooh, what a cool concidence :) I've been researching that for the past couple of hours, lol, because I'm interested in doing that, too. Here are some good ones that have come up in my search:
-Statistics (Econ and Stat are very closely related)
-Applied Mathematics (seems to be a good one for people who plan on going to grad school with Econ)
- Sociology (Econ also seems to be tied to Sociology, although it may not be recommended (I think) if you decide to pursue Econ at the graduate level)
-Finance (This has come up a few times but I still need to research that minor a little more)</p>

<p>If you like politics and are interested in issues such as income inequality, you should check out Cal's public policy minor. It's a combination of political science and economics, but in a more practical setting (Cal's Pol Sci is pretty theoretical). </p>

<p>You're background in economics will help you a lot.</p>

<p>Statistics
IEOR
Classes in accounting/finance at haas.</p>

<p>don't you have enough on your plate as a premed econ major?</p>

<p>By the way, if anyone has experience with this or anything:
-I'm thinking of double majoring in Econ. and Stat. and I just outlined my 4 years to see whether or not I'd have time for the requirements for each major (and then do the L&S breadth requirements). It's gonna be a lot of stuff, but I think I might be able to manage it.</p>

<p>Basically, is it better (more marketable) to do a double major in Econ/Stat with the possibility of ending up with an average but maybe not great GPA, or just devote my time to Econ?</p>

<p>^ I see that you're trying to get into Math 16A for the fall. You know you need 1A for a stats major, right?</p>

<p>Yes, and it took a lot of planning and studying the Catalog book but I'm thinking I'll take the 16 series and then the 1 series after that. I know about the partial credit, but I'm really wanting a Stat double major xD</p>

<p>^^i'm sorry but taking 16 and then 1a is just plain stupid and a waste of 2 classes</p>

<p>Yes, please don't take the 16 series and then 1...</p>

<p>go with stats. you might look into being an actuary, they make a ton of $$</p>

<p>i'd be down for stats except i still have to take math 53 and 54...</p>

<p>Are there maybe some Finance/Business courses you can take at Haas for a minor?</p>

<p>i was looking at some haas classes. So ugba 131 and 133 also count for my economics major, but it requires ugba 103 and says nothing about econ 136. </p>

<p>econ 136 and ugba 103 are basically the same class right? So wouldn't that also be sufficient to satisfy the prereq for ugba 131 and 133?</p>

<p>you actually can't minor in sociology, but if it plan it out right, you could double major.</p>

<p>I was wondering the same thing about ECON 136 and UGBA 103? Arent they basically the same thing? I want to take UGBA 137 but it only has UGBA 103 as a prereq. Totally lost.</p>
