Economics is the study of human decision-making, considered in relation to the economic tasks of life. It looks at how individuals within larger social groups, including communities, organizations, markets, and economies, make decisions about how much to work and play, spend and save. Economic analysis also considers how the economic decisions made by one group of people affect the decisions made by others and how the aggregated effects of these decisions impact production, distribution, trade, and the consumption of goods and services across local regions, countries, and the world.
The minor in Economics is open to all NYUAD students. Students who elect to pursue the minor are required to take five courses: 3 Foundations of Social Science courses: Statistics for the Social and Behavioral Sciences, Global Economic, Political, and Social Development in Historical Perspective (GEPS), and Markets, and two additional courses in Economics, designated by ECON-UH, ECON-UA, ECON-UB, or ECON-SHU, as electives.
