Undergraduate degrees and minors

Business Administration

Whether you want to start your own business or work in private industries like finance, tech, hospitality, or agribusiness, a degree in business administration will help you obtain your goals. Business administration majors develop fundamental business skills, such as marketing, finance, economics, and management. They can also choose one of six concentrations to get industry-specific knowledge in areas such as agribusiness, accounting, technology, and more.

Sustainable Hospitality Management

Want to gain hands-on skills and the knowledge needed to pursue careers in hospitality? Students who earn a degree in sustainable hospitality management find careers in hotels, restaurants, resorts, festivals and events, ecotourism, attractions, and eco recreation. We have two concentrations available: sustainable hotel, resort, and event management and sustainable ecotourism management.

Business Minor

Any student can utilize a business minor as it can be valuable in many fields. The minor can be completed in just four classes, and you can select an area of focus from management, marketing, finance, information technology, or entrepreneurship. Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor early and create a minor learning plan.


Nonprofit Management Minor

Gain the knowledge and professional skills needed to effectively lead and manage within a nonprofit or to prepare for a graduate degree in public administration. This program develops better and more informed nonprofit managers to improve service delivery, promote more cost-effective service, make better use of increasingly scarce resources, and strengthen the ability of community organizations to achieve their missions.
