Briar Cliff recognizes that the academic, professional and experiential background, combined with in-service study and updating will constitute the first two years of the bachelor's degree.
Students admitted to this program must have at least two years professional work experience.
In addition to the core requirements, the professional studies major requires one course drawn from the following electives: ACCT 323, BUAD 150, 223, 224, 276, 305, 330, 340, 345, 350, 383, ECON 211, HRM 240, 420, MIS 220, 321.
The professional studies student must complete enough electives & all general education criteria to meet the 128 credit hours required for graduation. Briar Cliff accepts a maximum of 62 hours in transfer credit from the community college in which the student earned his/her associate's degree.
Students must maintain a grade of "C" or better in all courses taken in this major. In the event that a transfer student might already have taken one or more of the courses in the core requirement, he or she will replace that course with one or more courses drawn from the electives.
