Business in the Liberal Arts Major Requirements
Students may declare the Business in the Liberal Arts major during the second semester of their sophomore year, but no sooner, and normally they may not declare the business major after the first semester of their junior year. Before declaring the Business in the Liberal Arts major, students must have already declared their primary major.
- Business in the liberal arts majors are required to complete a second major (i.e., they must double-major in business in the liberal arts and one other field) at St. Lawrence University.
- All business in the liberal arts majors must complete the following seven courses:
- ECON 100. Introduction to Economics.
- ECON 251. Intermediate Microeconomics.*
- ECON 252. Intermediate Macroeconomics.*
- ACC 203. Financial Accounting.
- ACC 204. Managerial Accounting.
- STAT 113. Introduction to Statistics.
- PHIL 202. Reasoning.
* These courses should be completed before the second semester of the student’s junior year. Normally, students who have not completed these courses by this time will not be allowed to declare the business in the liberal arts major.
- Business in the liberal arts majors must complete at least one experiential learning opportunity:
- Approved Internship
- Community-Based Learning
- Off-campus Study
- Business in the liberal arts majors must complete one course in three of the following four elective -areas. Students double-majoring in economics and business in the liberal arts may not take their business electives from courses taught in the economics department. Students may petition the business in the liberal arts program coordinator for additional courses they believe may satisfy one of these elective areas but are not listed below. Special Topics courses may not be used as electives in the business in the liberal arts major. Because the business in the liberal arts major relies on courses taught within the existing course structure at St. Lawrence, transfer courses must be approved by the appropriate department as a St. Lawrence course equivalent to count toward the Business in the Liberal Arts major. Additionally, because the program relies on courses taught through the regular curriculum the program coordinator is unable to approve transfer courses for St. Lawrence credit. Descriptions of these electives areas and courses that satisfy the elective areas defined below may be found at http://myslu.stlawu.edu/~bchezum/index.html.
- Social Responsibility
- Global Citizenship
- Analytical Thinking
- Social Contexts
Students wishing to complete honors are encouraged to do so in their primary major.
