Minor in Finance
The Finance minor can be combined with another business major (Accounting, Management, Marketing) or a nonbusiness major in areas such as Church Ministries, Intercultural Studies, or Social Work to provide a basic foundation for providing financial advice.
The Finance minor requires 21 credits that include three courses from the business core requirements to provide a basic foundation in accounting, economics, and finance along with upper-division major requirements of money & banking, real estate or general insurance, international finance and investments.

NOTE: A minor is a secondary field of interest that is meant to complement your academic major. While your major is chosen for your intended career choice, your minor may be something you pursue for your personal interest or to augment your major.
It is recommended that a student desiring to major or minor in finance make the decision before his or her junior year.
