|On page 47, under the heading ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES, in
the Red McCombs School of Business chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog,
2004-2006, make the following changes:
While a minor is not required as part of the BBA degree program, the student
may choose to complete a minor in either a second business field or a field outside
the school. A student may complete only one minor. The minor consists of at least
twelve semester hours in a single field, including at least nine hours of upper-division
Six of the required hours must be completed in residence. A course
used to fulfill the requirements of a minor may not be taken on the pass/fail
basis unless the course is offered only on that basis. Only one business core
course or one course counted toward the Bachelor of Business Administration degree
requirements on pages 49-50 may also be counted toward the minor. The internship
course may not be counted toward the minor.
The Red McCombs School of Business allows the student to minor in any field in
which the University offers a major. However, prerequisites and other enrollment
restrictions may prevent the student from minoring in some fields. Before planning
to take specific courses to fulfill the minor requirement, the student should
consult the department that offers those courses.
Students who minor in management information systems [
take Management Information Systems 301, 304, 325, and a fourth course selected
from a list approved by the department.
] may count six hours of lower-division and six hours of upper-division coursework.
The MIS faculty is removing the restrictions on the MIS minor to allow students
more flexibility in crafting a minor to suit their particular interests and skills
