The Administrative Science Program is devoted to the study of organizations in American society. In today's climate of intense domestic and international competition it is important to approach organizational problems with rigor, ethical responsibility, historical perspective, and imagination. Students in the Class of 2015 or earlier who wish to explore  management from a variety of perspectives may choose the administrative science minor.


Requirements for the Minor in Administrative Science

Administrative Science 212, 221, 311; Economics 133, 134; and two courses chosen from among Economics 331, Mathematics 212 or 231 (psychology majors may substitute the combination of Psychology 214 and 215 for Mathematics 212), and other courses in administrative science.

The minor is not available to members of the Class of 2016 and later and will not be offered after the 2013-14 academic year. Students intending to minor in administrative science should normally take Administrative Science 212 no later than their junior year.
