Business Minors for Non-Business Majors

Non-business majors are limited to one business minor.

All students are limited to two minors. The only exception is for International Business majors who are required to have a liberal arts minor and functional minor. IB students may have an optional 3rd minor.


The Minor (9-12 credits)

Students in the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences or in the School of Public Affairs who wish to take business courses may do so by declaring a minor in business. Before declaring the minor, they must choose one of the following tracks, and complete either Bus 1001 (1 credit) or have previously completed Bus 1000 (3 credits). To be awarded the minor, students must have a GPA of 2.0 or more in the courses included in the minor. Eligibility to declare such a minor is restricted to students who have an overall GPA of 2.0 or more at the time they declare the minor. Courses that apply to the minor may not be used for any other requirement. These minors do not fulfill the requirement to complete a liberal arts minor.

*Keep in mind that most courses have pre-or-co-requisites.
