The A&S/business dual major is offered jointly by Arts and Sciences (A&S) and the College of Business Administration (CBA). To satisfy the requirements, students must combine the business major with any A&S major. The A&S major will be listed first on the transcript as the degree-determining major (BS or BA), and the business major will be listed second. Students will be required to fulfill all A&S curriculum requirements. Students are admitted by a faculty committee that considers the cumulative GPA, specific courses taken and grades earned, SAT scores, and other relevant credentials. Students who have completed at least one full year of course work are eligible to apply to the program. Students interested in the program should seek assistance from their A&S advisor regarding the application process. For more information about the program, see http://www.business.pitt.edu/cba/academics/.
