Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Major & Minor Requirements

Requirements for the Major (56 credits)

The Business Studies major comprises a set of introductory courses, a set of core courses, a choice of electives drawn from Business, Society and Culture and economics courses, and a capstone that integrates  concepts students have been exposed to in the major. The introductory and core courses include five economics courses so that majors will have a thorough understanding of the operation of markets and the economy, with special attention to financial markets. Accounting and statistics round out the introductory courses. The other core courses include key business courses in ethics, history and management. There are four required electives for the major; students must select two courses from the current Business, Society and Culture offerings, and two courses from Economics electives.

Finally, a one-credit capstone course is designed to pull together previous work that students have done in prior courses, and will have students present their research to each other and faculty members throughout the term.

III. Electives (16 credits)

Students must complete 8 credits in tract A, Business Society and Culture, and 8 credits in track B, Applied Economics.  Students may use an internship INTC 200 - Internship project for one elective class (four credits), if the project is approved by the Director of Business and the student satisfactorily completes the Business internship paper.
