Interdisciplinary Themes

The Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration provides a distinctive focus on three interdisciplinary strategic themes. All students must choose one theme by their junior year. The available themes are:

All students must complete four (4) courses within their chosen theme, including one interdisciplinary "capstone" course in the fourth year. Students who complete our undergraduate program receive a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) with an interdisciplinary theme in one of the three areas.

Four Concentrations

In addition to the three strategic themes, students have the option to pursue a second concentration in a specific discipline. The available disciplines are:


Business students are required to have a minor. Students can minor in any field as long as the minor department agrees. Currently, the following minors are only available to students majoring in the College of Arts and Sciences program: Film Studies, and Archaeology.
