Programs by Degree Type

Declaration of Major

Students who have not chosen a major field of study by the end of their freshman year are encouraged to do so no later than the beginning of the sophomore year. When instructors and advisors are acquainted with the students’ aspirations, potentials, and limitations, they are in a better position to assist students with choosing a major field of study, which will contribute to career objectives.

Majors and Minors

The Bachelor of Business Administration requires a major core of courses and a specialization area. Social Work requires a major core of courses and no minor.

Although a minor is not required for the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees for graduation, students may declare a minor. Students who decide to declare a minor, must earn 18 hours in their minor of choice.

Change of Major or Minor

A student who desires to change a major should consult with his or her advisor and secure the appropriate form. A change in one’s major or minor is not official until the appropriate form is filed in the Office of the Registrar.

Maximum Number of Hours in a Major

Courses taken in a major in excess of requirements are considered electives rather than as fulfillment of major requirements. For all degrees, the General Education Requirements specialization requirements must be fulfilled.

Each student is ultimately responsible for completing the courses designated in the approved degree plan.
