Mitchell College of Business Area V Required Courses


There are no additional requirements in Areas I-V for students majoring Business. However as you are making choices from your Transfer Guide, the following three courses are highly recommended.  If you choose these particular courses from your Transfer Guide, you will have greater flexibility in your later choice of elective courses.

  • It is highly recommended that you complete SPH 107 Fundamentals of Public Speaking as part of your Area II requirements.
  • It is highly recommended that you complete PSY 200 General Psychology as part of your Area IV requirements.
  • It is highly recommended that you complete CIS 147 Advanced Microcomputer Applications as part of your Area V requirements. If CIS 146 is needed as a pre-requisite for CIS 147, it may be used as a non-business elective.

Please refer to the STARS guide for all requirements.  Also note: Only one half of the credit hours required for a degree may be transferred from a community college. While the total number of transfer hours will appear on the transcript, the academic department offering the major will determine how they may apply to the degree.
