The economics department offers an Economics of Global Issues Certificate. This Certificate provides students an opportunity to develop their global competency. One of the goals of UWEC is to provide students with "globally infused curricular and co-curricular experiences." This Certificate will also complement other programs on campus such as the Global Studies minor, the Latin American Studies major/minor, the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies major/minor, and other programs in Political Science.
Global Issues Certificate
This certificate requires 6 credits in micro and macroeconomic principles and allows for two elective courses. See the current catalog for more course specifics.
