LeBow Transitions From Concentrations to Majors

  • By Leda Kopach

Story Highlights

  • LeBow College of Business has transitioned from using the term "concentrations” to “majors.”

  • There are no changes in the number of credits or courses required toward a major.

  • Students will see the change reflected in DegreeWorks.

There will be no more head scratching or wondering if LeBow’s concentrations are the same as majors found in other institutions. Effective immediately, LeBow College of Business has transitioned from using the term “concentrations” to “majors.”

According to Interim Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Students Brian Ellis, “Students have been asking us to change terminology for some time. We believe that this change will better reflect students’ understanding of their specialization within the business curriculum. It will also allow our students to clearly identify themselves by major in the job market with business majors from other institutions.”

Ellis asserts that the change is in name only. There are no changes in the number of credits or courses required toward a major. Students will see their change reflected in DegreeWorks. 

The Undergraduate Advising Center plans to host information workshops in upcoming terms to assist with questions and concerns regarding the transition.
