Double major

If you’d like to complete 2 majors within the business administration degree program, you’ll need to complete at least 15 additional credits (18 credits for accounting). Those credits must be from courses that are:

  • Specifically required for your second major, and
  • Different from those used to satisfy requirements for your first major.

You must certify to 1 major before your application for a second major can be accepted.

How to apply

Apply through your advisor in the Carson Center for Student Success.

Degree progress plan

You may earn a minor in business administration only if you are majoring in a field outside the Carson College of Business. If you are a certified business major, you may only earn a minor in Hospitality Business Management, not a business minor within your business degree program.

Contact your advisor in the Carson Center for Student Success with questions.

“The community of the Carson College of Business is incredible. Both inside and outside of the classroom, the experiences and knowledge that you’ll gain from coming here are things not a lot of other schools can offer.”
