COBI Majors & Sample Plans of Study
The following check sheets are provided for current and prospective students in the College of Business and Innovation to get an understanding of the graduation requirements for our various degree programs.
The sample plans of study are guidelines offered to assist students in their term by term course planning. For the official requirements for the all degree programs, students must consult the University General Catalog issued in the year they began their degree program and their personalized Degree Audit Report (DARS). All students must make formal application for admission to the upper division and to declare their major. The earliest this can be done is while they are registered for the last semester of their sophomore year or the term just prior to reaching 60 earned hours.
The Degree Audit Report (DARS) is available on-line through UT's Web Portal and also available from the Office of Student Retention and Academic Success in the Savage Business Complex Rm 3130. It is an up to date computerized list of degree requirements and the courses a student has already completed.
Please note that these check sheets and plans of study do not replace the knowledge and expertise of the professional academic advisers in the College of Business. Although the primary responsibility for degree completion rests with the student, we encourage students to use these guides in addition to regular consultations with an academic adviser.
COBI's Bachelor Degree Programs
The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) undergraduate curriculum includes a broad liberal arts background, a general core of business courses, and a specific area of specialization. During freshman and sophomore years, students take general education classes, as well as several basic business courses. During the sophomore year, students apply to the upper division of the program and they begin their business core and major courses during their junior year, and choose an area of specialization. You can choose to pursue one major, a major and a minor, or two majors - we offer the flexibility for you to customize your education. The College of Business currently offers the BBA in thirteen fields.
While MATH 1730 is the only required math course for students in the BBA program, some students are required to begin in pre-req courses of MATH 1200 and/or MATH 1320 and are still able to work these courses into the minimum 126 required hours for graduation.
