At the end of your sophomore year, you’ll declare a business major. As a junior and senior, you’ll take courses specific to your chosen concentration as well as business electives. And, if you choose to study abroad, you’ll likely do so sometime during year 3 or 4.
In addition to your major courses, you’ll also take courses in the St. Thomas Core Curriculum throughout your four years.
Students who complete this coursework receive a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with a concentration in Business Communication.
Your professor is always available to help you with your coursework. If you need extra help with your core courses in accounting, finance or operations, free tutors are also available. Whether you’re stuck on an assignment or want help preparing for an exam, our tutors are always glad to work with you. You can schedule a 30-minute one-on-one appointment or drop in during open hours.
St. Thomas maintains a large network of alumni and local business connections, which leads to real-world learning opportunities, internships and - oftentimes - employment after graduation. When you’re ready for an internship, the Career Development Center can help you find a position that supports your professional goals.
