Business Focus for a B.S. in General Studies
The B.S. in General Studies is not a Business degree. Students earning a B.S. in General Study do have an option that allows one of the areas of focus to be in Business. The choice of Business courses that are available for students who are not earning a degree is Business is limited based on the need to complete basic courses prior to attempting more advance courses.
The requirements for an area of focus indicate that hours in Area F should be used to meet 1000 and 2000 level coursework needed to support the Area of Focus. At a minimum, students planning to complete the Business focus must complete ACCT 2101 and ECON 2106 in order to be able to complete enough hours at the 3000/4000 level. For more options at the Junior and Senior level, students should also complete ACCT 2102 and ECON 2105. Grades of C or higher in each course are required to attempt most upper level courses in Business.
The area of focus requires 15 hours of 3000-4000 level coursework. The courses that are available to B.S. in General Studies students depend on the lower level courses completed and the student's area of interest. To see the options available at the upper level, click here.
