Business Undeclared

About the Program

The LeBow College of Business offers an Undeclared option that allows incoming students to explore the wide range of academic programs in our college. The program is designed as a point-of-entry for prospective students who know they want to study business, but aren’t sure which of our 12 undergraduate programs is right for them. It gives students the ability to enroll in their freshman year of college and take a one-year sequence of courses, comprehensive career counseling and academic advising that will help them discover their major without losing valuable time. No later than the end of spring term in the first academic year, students are required to select an appropriate major which will lead to a bachelor’s degree.

This is not a degree granting program—a primary major must be chosen and there is no co-op with this option. This program is not available to transfer students.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.
