Admission to Flagler College – Tallahassee requires an Associate of Arts degree or completion of 60 transferable college credits. (Students without an AA degree must fulfill Flagler’s general education requirements.)
Business Administration majors are encouraged to complete a minor in finance or marketing. Since BUS 301, BUS 302, and ECO 321 are part of the major requirements, students would only need three additional courses for a minor in finance. For a minor in marketing, students would only need four additional courses since BUS 310 & BUS 315 are part of the major requirements. These courses would typically be completed over the summer semester.
