B.A Business Core Requirements

The Bachelor of Arts in Business degree is an alternative to the traditional Bachelor of Science program. Both degrees prepare students for careers in today’s rapidly evolving, global business environment. The B.A. degree, however, adopts the classic liberal arts pedagogy of independent research in a sequence of classes that culminate in a Senior Thesis. All students will complete a common 13-course core sequence. The core is nearly identical to the B.S. in Business core insuring thorough coverage of all the main business areas. One major, Management, is available with the Senior Thesis as its endpoint.
