Frequently asked questions
How Do I Know Which Major I Want?
The Pre-Business program gives students time to make an informed choice. After completing eight required courses, students are ready to select the major that is right for them. If students have any questions about the nine business majors, they may contact the chairperson of that department to discuss which major is best for them.
Can I Have a Dual Major?
Many students choose to dual (double) major in two business disciplines. For instance, students can major in Accounting and Finance; Economics and Finance; Management and Marketing; or Marketing and Finance. A dual major can improve a student's job prospects after graduation. Students who major in two business disciplines and plan carefully can still graduate in four years.
If a student decides to dual major in a business discipline and another major outside the business program, it may take more than four years to complete your degree requirements. Students interested in going to law school might major in Economics and Political Science. Students interested in a career in the FBI might major in Accounting and Criminal Justice. If a student is considering a second major outside of the business programs, they should talk with advisors in both departments early in their program.
