Business Administration Minor

The Business Administration minor provides a service to non-business majors who seek the skills provided by a limited but cohesive set of business courses supportive of their own majors. The Business Administration minor can be used to supplement a wide range of majors in programs across campus including Art, Biology, Computer Science, History, Music, Political Science, Religion, and Theatre.

Exploring the Minor Students considering Business Administration as a minor should begin exploring the discipline through the Program’s introductory courses (BUS 120, ECO 101 or ECO 102) and through various Special Topics courses offered in regular and summer terms.

Course Sequencing Considerations (in order to complete minor requirements within eight terms)— Prospective Business Administration minors should complete or waive the Developmental Mathematics requirement as soon as possible because this is a prerequisite for BUS 120, ECO 101, and ECO 102. BUS 120 or ECO 102 is the prerequisite for BUS 315.
