Minor in Business for Liberal Arts Majors
This minor, under the supervision of the Business and Liberal Arts Program, is designed to provide students majoring in the traditional fields of liberal arts with basic knowledge and skills useful for a career in business. Students may also apply for admission to the Internship Sequence, which includes an additional 4- or 5-credit course requirement and is supplemented by internships, workshops, seminars, mentoring opportunities, and advising.
Students may declare the minor in Business for Liberal Arts Majors upon successful completion of two semesters of a declared Liberal Arts major* (i.e., 24 credits). Acceptance into the Internship Sequence is by written application to the Director of the Business and Liberal Arts Program.
