Econ has a lot more practical value, especially if you decide to minor in business. In fact, I think micro and macro economics should be required courses for ALL undergraduates, regardless of the major. It is just basic knowledge you should have before you can call yourself college educated.

Usually summer is the time to take classes you hate and can only endure for a short period. If the two classes you listed dont fall in this group, I would reconsider getting a hard science or something similar out of the way...

jgibson is correct. You can't really call someone an educated person if they don't know some macro and micro econ.

I agree with jgibson & Andrew. Econ is essential for understanding the world around you. Also interesting --- problem is that it's usually taught by Asian grad students
