Marketing Major, Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BAB)
The Marketing curriculum prepares students for a wide variety of possible career paths. Marketers can be involved with such activities as product development, pricing decisions, advertising, sales management and marketing research. Marketing practitioners act as the connecting link between the firm and its external environment; they assist organizations in adapting to an ever-changing environment.
Students must be formally admitted to the Business Undergraduate Program or officially declared as a minor before enrolling in business classes in the major. See Business Administration Course Enrollment Policies for more information.
Courses taken for the Marketing Major beyond the required Business Administration Core are not counted double toward the Entrepreneurship, Finance, Human Resource Management Option, Operations Management Option or General Business Option majors.
- formal admission to the BAB program is required;
- ECON 200 and ECON 201 are considered supporting courses and may be used to fulfill GECRs as well as requirements for the Business Administration degree; however, these courses are not counted twice toward the total of 180 credits for graduation.
Grade Requirements for Graduation: a minimum grade ≥C in each course required for the major and a minimum GPA ≥2.5 for all upper division Business Administration core courses as well as required and elective courses taken to fulfill requirements for the major area.

SOAR calculates based on these two catalog years.
- The catalog in effect at the student's first term of current matriculation is used to determine BACR (Breadth Area Credit Requirements) and UGR (Undergraduate Graduation Requirements).
- The catalog in effect at the time the student declares a major or minor is used to determine the program requirements.
