Business Administration Minor

Students wanting to gain a core understanding of business without making it the center of their education can receive a minor in business administration.

The business administration minor is available to students who have a major other than accounting, e-business or business administration. All requirements for the business administration minor must be completed with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher. Students electing the business administration minor are not formally admitted to nor graduate from the College of Business and Economics.

To earn the minor, students must complete 12 of these 21 units at Towson.

These requirements are for catalog year 2015-2016. If your catalog year is different, please refer to the specific requirements in your specific catalog.
