Capitalism Studies, Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs (by level)

Capitalism Studies is an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the history and present-day workings of the modern global economy.  The purpose of the Minor in Capitalism Studies is to encourage students to gain a broad, well-rounded understanding of business, labor, government, and economics, by considering those subjects from multiple disciplines, across the social sciences and humanities.  By demanding an interdisciplinary perspective, the minor requires students to combine quantitative and qualitative analysis; it encourages not only numeracy and financial literacy, but also historical, institutional, ethical, and cultural perspectives.  It is designed to prepare students to work in a wide range of occupations in business, government, and the non-profit sector, and for the obligations of state, national, and global citizenship, in the 21st century.

Admission Requirements

The minor is open to all students at UNC Charlotte.
