The Minor
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 coursework.2 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.

2. Students who minor in management information systems must take Management Information Systems 301, 304, 325, and a fourth course selected from a list approved by the department.
Students who minor in any area of Finance must take Finance 367 as three of the required twelve hours.
