Minor in Business Administration
Minor courses of study are academic programs designed to satisfy students’ personal interests and to meet their professional needs. Students explore, in some depth, the offerings in a field of study. A minor course of study provides the student with significant experience in a discipline organized around skills, methodology, and subject matter.
A minor program does not provide the depth of knowledge and experience as a major. All minors consist of 15-24 hours of coherent academic coursework. At least six hours must be fulfilled at the upper level. In addition, at least six hours of coursework applied to a minor must be completed at Embry-Riddle and at least three of those hours completed in residence must be at the upper-level. Students must earn a 2.00 GPA or higher in the minor to complete that program of study successfully. Some minor courses of study are not open to students pursuing particular degree programs or areas of concentration. A minor must be in a discipline outside of the student’s major field of study.
To gain the greatest value from their academic experiences, students are encouraged to select minors that complement their degree program and/or other minors they are pursuing. Students are encouraged to declare a minor by the beginning of their senior year. Designed to include a minimum number of required courses, minors provide students, whenever possible, with flexibility in fulfilling program requirements. No more than two substitutions (six hours) are permitted in any one minor or in any combination of multiple minors. A student who seeks three minors could have two substitutions in one minor, or one substitution in two of the three minors.
