Minors Related to Business
Besides enrolling in a major, students are encouraged to consider one of the many minors of study that are available at Hawai i Pacific University. A minor program of study encompasses completion of selected courses that are fewer in number and less comprehensive than a major. At least four courses in the minor field must be taken in addition to coursework in the major. All students must complete a minimum of six (6) semester credits of minor course work in residence with HPU in order to be awarded a minor. Although the minor is not listed on the diploma, it is listed on the transcript, provided that the student has completed all necessary course work and the degree has been conferred. Minors must be identified prior to degree conferral. Students may not add minor courses of study to degree programs that have already been completed and conferred on the original transcript.
The minors below are of particular interest to students earning a BSBA in one field who want to add a second area of concentration in a different field. BSBA students will generally need only four courses for the minor. Students earning BS or BA degrees can also earn these minors but will need to take all the prerequisite courses which in some cases includes the entire group of Upper-Division Business requirements. BSBA students might also be interested in some of the other minors offered at HPU such as those related to Communication, Humanities, or Social Sciences.
