 Advertising and Promotions Minor

The College of Business offers eleven minors in business and economics. Most minors require 18 credit hours plus prerequisites, if any. These minors (with the exception of economics) are designed primarily for non-business majors. A student may not take more than 30 credit hours in the College of Business without declaring a business major. The acceptance of transfer credits will be governed by standards and policies of the College of Business and its departments.

Students should choose a minor that will help them in their chosen career. The Advertising and Promotions minor will give non-marketing students an overview of the advertising and promotional functions and strategies of organizations.
