Division Policies and Requirements

Candidates for graduation in Business and Enterprise must have earned a minimum of 120 credits. Of the 120, a maximum of 15 credits may be earned in non-Arts and Science programs of the University (e.g., education) or in courses offered for the convenience of students with particular professional goals (e.g., chemistry for nursing).

The final 30 credits MUST be earned at Pitt-Johnstown.

Degree candidates must have a grade point average of 2.000 (C average) or higher in all work at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown or at the University’s other campuses.

The courses required for a major must be completed with a minimum grade point average of 2.000.

All students must complete the general education requirements in addition to major requirements. 

These include core competencies in English writing (demonstrated by the successful completion of ENGCMP 0005 - COMPOSITION 1  and ENGCMP 0006 - COMPOSITION 2 ); public speaking (demonstrated by successful completion of COMMRC 0052- Public Speaking); and quantitative reasoning (demonstrated by successful completion of one of the Quantitative Reasoning courses listed elsewhere in this catalog).  In addition, students must pass ten other General Education courses from at least eight different disciplines, distributed over four Worlds of Knowledge (Aesthetic and Creative Expression, Society and Civics, Global History and Culture, and Science and Nature).

Students may earn no more than 2 credits in physical education per term, to a maximum of 8 during their entire academic career at Pitt-Johnstown. Only the first four physical education credits are counted as being in arts and sciences; any additional credits are considered as non-arts and sciences.

Experiential Learning
All students graduating with a degree in Business must complete at least six credits of Experiential Learning.  In addition to the senior capstone course, BUS 1700 - BUSINESS STRATEGY  which counts for three credits, students can complete a 3-credit internship in their major or an additional course in their major that has been designated as an Experiential Learning class.  This requirement is intended to provide students with skills and experience in real world settings, doing projects for real world clients, or completing simulations of real world business applications.


Business Internships
Each of the Business majors offers students an opportunity to enroll in an internship that provides field experience in some aspect of the students’ career interests. Students interested in serving an internship during their junior or senior year should discuss this with their academic advisor. Internships are graded S/U only.

     NOTE - The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Business major stopped accepting new students as of the Fall 2016 semester.  This program will continue to be offered for students who began prior to that semester.  This program will remain active until all current students have completed the program.

Faculty: George Berger, Guo Kai
________________________________________
To graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics, a student must complete both the introductory (ECON 0105  and ECON 0115 ) and intermediate (ECON 1101  and ECON 1111 ) sequences in micro-and macroeconomics, as well as six other major courses in economics.

Completion of the 0105-0115 introduction sequence is a prerequisite to any major course. Business courses may be taken as electives outside the economics major, but do not fulfill major course requirements in economics.

Majors must also complete STAT 1040 - STATISTICS FOR BUS/ECON  and an acceptable calculus course (MATH 0121 ) or sequence (MATH 0221 /MATH 0231 ).

These should be completed by the end of the sophomore year.

Majors who are interested in pursuing graduate study in economics or a related field are advised to complete a three-term sequence in calculus (MATH 0221 /MATH 0231 /MATH 0241 ).
