Specific requirements for these programs are outlined below.

Please note: Students minoring in the School of Business and Economics are required to receive a C- or better in all minor required courses.

NOTES:

  • Please make sure to check the listed courses for pre-requisites when planning your schedule.
  • If a student pursuing a minor in any business program and who has already taken ECON 100, decides to pursue the full major program, that student must take ECON 101 and ECON 102 as required by the major.
  • If a student decides to minor in any business program but has already taken ECON 101 (or ECON 102), then that student should not take ECON 100 but rather ECON 102 (or ECON 101).
  • A student may do only one minor in the School of Business and Economics.

* The two electives in the Performing Arts Management minor must be from the same discipline (i.e. - both DR, or both MUS)
** ECON 241 and 242 require MATH 111/121 (Calculus I) and MATH 112/122 (Calculus II).
*** MGT 118 replaces MKT 345. Those who have already taken MKT 345/MGT 345 toward a minor in management do not need to take MGT 118.
