Online Degree Options

Online Degree Completion Options in the LCOB

Beginning in Fall 2015, we will offer students the possibility to complete all of their upper division required course work fully online. We will add other concentrations in the coming semesters to give students the greatest possible flexibility to complete their B.A. in Business Administration degrees.

Structure
The Online Marketing Degree Completion Option is a degree option designed for students to complete upper division courses 100% online (60 units) in order to complete the B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing degree (120 units). To obtain the 60 units of upper division courses online, students must take 27 units of upper division business core courses, 21 units of Marketing concentration courses, and 12 units of upper division GE courses. These requirements are identical to the requirements of the equivalent on-campus program.

The granted degree will be identical to the degree offered for the on-campus Marketing program.

The Online Marketing Degree Completion Option is for students who have completed (1) 60 units, (2) ALL lower division GE requirements, (3) all preparation for the Major coursework (17 units), (4) all Lower Division Business and Support Coursework (13 units), (5) the Physical Education Requirement, and (6) the WST (Writing Skills Test).

Coursework
To obtain the 60 units of upper division courses, students must take 27 units of upper division business core courses, 21 units of Marketing concentration courses, and 12 units of upper division GE courses. All courses will be offered 100% online. The following summarizes the program’s coursework.
