Minor Overview

  • Open to non-business students only.
  • Less quantitative - provides a good foundation of business skills with the flexibility to explore selected areas of interest in business.
  • Eight courses required (five of these must be taken at Temple University).
  • A grade point average of 2.0 in courses in the minor is required.
  • Courses for the minor must be completed prior to graduation; if completed, the minor will be recorded on the final transcript upon graduation.

Interested students should discuss with the Academic Advising Center how the courses in the minor will fit into their overall degree plan and are strongly encouraged to declare the minor early in their academic career.
