SPECIFIC INFORMATION
The Bachelor of Science degree program with a major in Biology will provide you with an enriching life science curriculum. Foundational courses are designed to establish a broad base of study while offering opportunities to pursue specific interests in greater depth through three concentration areas: a Traditional concentration, an Environmental Studies concentration, or a Secondary Teacher Certification concentration. Regardless of the concentration you choose, you will experience inquiry- and project-based learning through laboratory investigations, field work, and research projects.

Students who have an interest in biology but do not have enough time to complete the major may wish to consider a minor in Biology. A biology minor provides you with knowledge and skills to complement your major area of study while expanding your career options.

SPECIAL ELEMENTS OF THE PROGRAM
Program Scheduling

The B.S. in Biology program is primarily a day program, although some courses are offered in the evening on a rotating schedule.

The department accepts transfer credits according to the college guidelines.  However, major coursework older than 10 years, from time of admittance, will be transferred in as elective credit and may not be applied to the major. Students may petition to the department chair for the older credits to be applied towards the major.

Credit for Prior Learning
Learning derived from life experiences and from individual study is of significant academic value and can often be equated with college-level studies.  Students may earn credit by examination, tutorial study and cooperative work experience. Permission of the department chair is required to select these options. Not more than four credit hours in cooperative work experience may be counted within the 120 credit hours required for a degree.

Academic Performance Standard
Only required courses with a grade of C or better can be applied to fulfill the Biology major or minor.

Computer Literacy Requirement

B.F.A. CANDIDACY APPLICATION PROCEDURES

Degree applicants must first complete the major interview process and gain acceptance as an art major. After further studio course work, the student may apply for admission to the B.F.A. Program. Application, including an interview, samples of work to be pursued, and written thesis proposal, must be completed no later than the beginning of the junior year. If accepted, the first term of the junior year will be a probationary period and upon successful completion, the student will be officially accepted into the BFA program. Guidance in the preparation of the written declaration must be provided by a department faculty member who, at the request of the applicant, has agreed to serve as thesis director.

Thesis project/essay
The thesis project is composed of a work or group of works in the candidate's area of study demonstrating a mature level of technical competency and aesthetic awareness. The project is accompanied by an essay indicating the candidate's thesis director. Faculty recommendations may include provisional admission. A complete record (CD-ROM format) of works is also required.

Additional interviews
After being accepted into the B.F.A. program, the candidate must meet once every semester with the department faculty. The purpose of this meeting is to review thesis work and monitor progress. If at any time, the student fails to show progress the faculty reserves the right to withdraw the BFA acceptance and the student may then reapply when sufficiently prepared.

Business Overview

POTENTIAL CAREERS
Benefits Specialist • Certified Public Accountant • Entrepreneur • Human Resource Manager • Internal Revenue Agent • Management Accountant • Health Science Management • Market Researcher • Organizational Trainer • Project Manager • Sales Representative

The current demand for business graduates is unlimited, particularly for women in careers such as marketing, management and finance. Marygrove graduates serving as certified public accountants, internal revenue agents, controllers, human resource managers, accountants and sales representatives tell us that strong analytical, communication and mathematics skills are the best foundation for business majors who want to progress rapidly in their careers. Marygrove can prepare you for the global emphasis in business. A major in Business with fluency in a foreign language (see Interdisciplinary Studies: Language and Business) can give you a competitive edge in your job search.

GENERAL INFORMATION
The Department of Business offers undergraduate programs for students interested in careers in business, commerce, industry, finance, as well as not-for-profit enterprises such as health care, social services, educational institutions and government agencies.

As a student in the business department, you may select from five areas of concentration-accounting, financial planning, general business, management and marketing. Whatever your choice of degree or program, you will take courses that are professionally oriented and academically rooted in the liberal arts. And your course work will be theoretical, practical, comprehensive, and specialized.

SPECIFIC INFORMATION
The Bachelor of Arts degree program with a major in business is designed for students who want to take traditional business classes as their major course of study. These students combine 36 credit hours of business courses with a minor from an area outside of business, such as psychology, art, computer information systems‚ foreign language‚ or political science. You may concentrate in accounting, financial planning, general business, management, or marketing.

The Bachelor of Business Administration degree is a highly concentrated program requiring a minimum of 58 credit hours in business and accounting courses. As a student in the B.B.A. program, you will not be required to select a minor. If you choose to pursue a career in public accounting, the B.B.A. degree program is particularly suited for you. The curriculum offers the course work you need to prepare for C.P.A. licensing.

The minor in business can provide you with knowledge and skills to complement your major area of study. Also, it expands your career options after graduation. This broad-based minor consists of 24 credit hours in business and accounting.

The Associate of Arts degree program provides a broad introduction to business. As a student in this program, you will have an opportunity to complete two years of college in preparation for an entry-level business position. If you earn an associate’s degree, you may continue your college education by applying your credits toward a bachelor’s degree with a major or minor in business.

The Post-degree certificate in business is designed for students with a bachelor’s degree in a field other than business who are interested in attaining the basic skills offered in a business curriculum. To receive a Certificate of Completion, you will need to complete a 20-credit hour program.

SPECIAL ELEMENTS OF THE PROGRAM
Program Scheduling
The courses in the Business Department are offered to both day and night students. Occasionally, especially in upper-level courses, a student might have to enroll in a night or Saturday course. Part-time night students (6-8 hours) may expect to graduate in 2-8 years, depending on transfer credits, general education requirements, and summer school attendance. Some of the business courses are offerend in on-line format; others may be offered as blended classes (denoted as Hybrid courses).

Transfer Students
The business department generally accepts transfer credits from accredited institutions of higher education. Business majors‚ however‚ must earn a minimum of 15 credit hours in business at Marygrove. The head of the department will determine other required courses.

Advance Placement and College Level Examination Program (AP/CLEP)
Students completing AdvancePlacement Examinations (AP) with grades three or higher will be granted credit.

Academic Performance
Only courses with a grade of C- or better can be applied to fulfill the business core, the area of concentration and the related discipline requirements of a major in business and/ or the B.B.A. degree. Only courses with a grade of C- or better may fulfill requirements of a minor in business.

Awards
The Business Department presents an award to the outstanding graduating senior with a business major.

Post-degree Certificate, Second Major, and second degree Programs. If you have completed a bachelor’s degree, you may enroll as a post-degree student and take course work in business toward a certificate, and/or complete requirements for a major in business.

If you have earned other than a Bachelor of Arts degree at Marygrove or another accredited institution, you may qualify for a second bachelor’s degree with a major in business. You will need to complete a minimum of 30 credit hours beyond the first degree‚ and fulfill all current general education, related discipline, and business core and concentration requirements. Specific requirements will be determined in consultation with the head of the business department.
