General Academic Requirements
*Please refer to the academic catalog for information regarding the general academic requirements from Roanoke College.
The student must earn a cumulative grade point average of at least a 2.0 in all Intellectual Inquiry Courses (INQ) attempted as well as a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in all courses attempted in the major.
Students must satisfactorily complete the Intellectual Inquiry Curriculum requirements and the major requirements. Since these may be completed without reaching the total of 33.50 course units, students must elect courses from areas of personal interest and/or professional need to fulfill the remaining work.
A student may decide to complete a program with a double major. This major could include two from Business Administration and Economics; or one from Business Administration and Economics and one from outside the department.
All requirements for each major must be completed and a maximum of five units may be applicable to both majors, provided that the total number of courses in both majors is no fewer than 17. If the majors are in different degree areas (B.A., B.S., B.B.A.), the student must select one degree to be awarded. If the major is interdisciplinary, the number of units applicable to each major must be approved by the appropriate chairperson.
