Business Administration Degree
Bachelor of Science (B.S.)
Crown’s Christian business degree program provides our Minnesota student body with a comprehensive business degree designed for those who will manage or lead the business function in either the for-profit or nonprofit sector. As a business degree, students in the program will cover multiple specialty areas including marketing, accounting, strategic planning, human resource management, and more. Every program at Crown also includes Biblical studies courses which provides a Christian perspective applicable to the field.
Earning a business degree provides exceptional flexibility for choosing and shaping one’s career. The principles gained in the program are applicable to many organizations and students who pursue significant internship experiences while earning their business administration degree, can build a valuable network leading to exceptional learning and potential job opportunities upon graduation.
Business Administration Major (B.S) Courses
At least 30% of this degree, or a minimum of 38 credits, must be at the upper (300-400) level. If you choose to take lower-level Christian Studies core classes (CHM 201 or CHM 211 ), then you must take enough upper-level general electives to meet this requirement.
Optional: Select a 9-12 credit business emphasis.
1 Select humanities electives from COM, ENG, ESL, FAR, HIS, HUM, LAN, MUS, PHI, or PRC.
2 Select social science electives from ANT, CSJ, ECO, ESL, GEO, HIS, POL, PSY, or SOC.
* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. In addition, some courses required by the major can be used to fulfill requirements in the Christian Studies or General Education Cores. By doing that the number of electives needed would increase so that the minimum of 125 credits is reached.
