Degree Requirements

For Students Enrolled in the School of Business

GWSB Offers Three Undergraduate Degrees

During the first year, all GWSB students are encouraged to complete the same set of requirements, regardless of the degree they choose to pursue. This gives our students an opportunity to explore and research their degree options.

School of Business General Education Requirements (Required for all three degree options): 

Minors & 2nd Majors: Options for GWSB Students

All GWSB degrees allow students to choose a minor or second major outside of the School of Business. BBA students entering Fall 2014 or later are required to complete a minor outside of the School of Business; all BS students are required to complete a second major outside the School of Business; BAccy students are not required to do either, but are able to. Students should consult with the department in which their study of interest is housed to learn more about minor/major course requirements. They should also consult with a GWSB advisor to ensure they will be able to pursue a minor/major and stay on track towards graduation. Declaration Forms can be found on the Advising Center’s Forms page.

Review GW’s Center for Career Services’ Career Option Sheets to become familiar with how your minor or second major option relates to sample occupations, potential topics, work settings, student organizations, professional associations, online resources and key skills needed in specific industries.

      • BBA students concentrating in Business Analytics may not complete the Business Analytics minor.
