The General Education curriculum (GenEd) is required for all students. Note that students not continuously enrolled who have not been approved for a Leave of Absence or study elsewhere must follow University requirements current at the time of re-enrollment.
The degree of Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) may be conferred upon a student by recommendation of the faculty and upon the satisfactory completion of a minimum of 124 semester hours of credit with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 overall and in the major. A minimum of 124 credit hours will be earned in the following four requirement categories:
Students must follow the program requirements in effect at the time the major is declared or changed. Program requirements include both the College Graduation Requirements listed here and the courses required for the major listed in the Programs of Study. Students not continuously enrolled who have not been approved for a Leave of Absence or study elsewhere must follow University requirements current at the time of re-enrollment.
Go to the General Education pages in this Bulletin for information on the GenEd curriculum.

Major requirements are determined by the effective semester of their declaration and students should declare their majors upon the completion of 60 credits in consultation with their academic advisors. Major requirements include both the College Graduation Requirements listed above and the courses required for the major listed in the Programs of Study.
Twenty business courses (59 s.h.) are required as part of the lower- and upper-division foundation requirements for the B.B.A. program. In addition, a minimum of six business courses must be completed in the major. In completing the courses in the major, students will become competent in understanding critical business concepts and the practice of ethical decision-making, and demonstrate both effective written and oral communication and the ability to apply critical thinking to business problems. Students who choose to pursue a dual major in business can double-count a maximum of one course toward both majors. All Fox students must take a minimum of two writing-intensive courses at Temple. One of these courses will be Business Administration 2196; the second will be a writing-intensive course in the major.
NOTE: Many upper-division foundation courses and major courses have prerequisites. Some prerequisites also include minimum grade requirements. Students are required to meet all prerequisites. Prerequisites will be strictly enforced and the school reserves the right to de-enroll students from courses when prerequisites have not been met. Course descriptions, including prerequisites, are found in the Course Catalog in Self-Service Banner, accessed through the TUportal.
Free electives: Students who have satisfied all of the requirements for GenEd, the Fox School Foundation, and the major (listed above) will need additional credits to achieve the 124 credit minimum required for graduation. These credits may be taken in either business or non-business courses. Students are encouraged to explore completing a minor, a certificate, or a second major for these credits. Students who choose to pursue a dual major in business can double-count a maximum of one course toward both majors. Students who choose to pursue one or more minors may not double-count courses already used to meet the requirements for a major or different minor.
