Business Studies Major and Minor

As a History major, you also must complete either the Business Studies major (BSM) or minor.

Business Studies Major

The BSM has six required courses and two electives. The required courses are the first six in the General Business Core, which must be completed by all of our students:

Legal and Ethical Environment of Business
Tools and Concepts in Accounting and Finance
Practice and Applications in Accounting and Finance
Business Statistics
Marketing and Operations Fundamentals
Human Behavior and Organizations

For your remaining two courses, you can select classes within a single discipline such as marketing, information design and corporate communication or management. You also can take courses in different disciplines but that focus on the same theme, such as nonprofits, technology or international business. This approach allows you to gain broad business skills, but tailor them to a particular field that matches your interests.

Business Studies Minor

The minor requires the following courses:

Legal and Ethical Environment of Business
Tools and Concepts in Accounting and Finance
Practice and Applications in Accounting and Finance
Statistical Analysis of Business Data
Marketing-Operations Fundamentals or Human Behavior and Organizations
