The Curriculum Pyramid

Pyramid detailing the basic components of Smeal's 7 majors: BA 411 (3 credits), major field courses (15-36 credits), business core (12 credits), supporting business (10-19 credits), entrance to major courses (27-31 credits), electives (13-19 credits), and general ed courses (46 credits).

The seven majors in the Smeal curriculum have many of the same basic components. Our majors require approximately 120 credits to graduate.

In addition to our academic curriculum, we also recognize that we are no longer living in a world where business takes place only within our borders. As a result, we require that students fulfill Global Education Requirements by attaining proficiency in a foreign language and taking courses that focus on other countries, cultures and histories.
