Minor in Business Studies

The minor in Business Studies is designed to provide Bachelor of Arts students in liberal arts a basic foundation knowledge in business.  There are several reasons for liberal arts students to consider this minor.  As a general rule, liberal arts degrees are less career focused than business degrees.  The minor in Business Studies allows Bachelor of Arts students to earn an academic credential that demonstrates a basic familiarity with the functional areas of business and with business terminology, concepts, and problems.  This knowledge can be helpful to Bachelor of Arts students in their job search and career development activities.

Actuarial Sciences, Global Studies, Health Studies, History, Mathematical Sciences, Media and Culture, Philosophy, Public Policy, Spanish Studies, and Sustainability Sciences majors must complete either the Business Studies major or minor.  Students who choose the Business Studies minor have room on their DRS to complete a second minor of their choice.
