Until a student decides on a business specialization, he or she can take classes as an undeclared major through the fifth semester.  Following the fifth semester, students should select a major and receive approval from the Dean’s Office. A student may choose to have a double major, but there is no guarantee that he or she will be able to complete the second major within the 120-credit hours required for graduation.

Business students are permitted to take a minor in one of several fields in liberal arts and science.  Students interested in such a program should see the dean of liberal arts, education and sciences, the chairperson of the appropriate department, or the program director.

At the CBA, students will discover an approachable faculty who are willing to share stories and lessons that pertain to the real world.  Explore our programs and discover a hidden interest that could develop into a lifetime passion.
