The undergraduate degree programs are designed to provide opportunities for the understanding of the institutional structure and behavioral patterns of a modern industrial society, to provide training for business careers, and to prepare teachers of business and economics. Three types of degrees are offered, the BBA, BAS and the BAAS.
Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)
A student may obtain a BBA degree in the following fields:
- Business Administration (general)
- Human Resource Management
*The TWU School of Management attempts to ensure that all accounting and non-accounting business classes offered are accepted by the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy for CPA Exam credit. The combination of the TWU BBA/Accounting and TWU MBA/Accounting degrees is designed to provide all courses needed under current requirements. However, the State Board can and does make changes in course requirements / course acceptance as the Board deems appropriate. In addition, TWU may offer elective courses from time to time that do not meet any specific requirements set forth by the Board. Students are subject to all Board changes until the student receives an official letter from the State Board indicating that the student has fulfilled all requirements. Each individual interested in becoming qualified to sit for the CPA Exam must work with the State Board to determine her/his full eligibility for the CPA Exam.
Bachelor of Applied Science in Business (BAS) - General
The BAS in business is available for students who transfer in with an AAS degree. At TWU, students complete 42 credit hours in the core curriculum and at least 36 credits in business courses to reach a minimum of 120 credit hours.
