Meta Major: Business

Associate of Arts Degree

The world of business is dynamic and complex. The Meta Major: Business, Associate of Arts (AA) degree, allows students to explore the different functional areas of the business world including accounting, economics, ethics, management, and marketing to make a more informed career choice.

The goal of this program is to give students a strong business curriculum foundation which enables them to build on and transfer to a four-year institution. This transfer program will also enhance skills and competencies in current jobs, and assist in career advancement opportunities. Students who are unsure if Business is the field for them are encouraged to try this business exploration program degree.

Students who are interested in transferring to the College of Business at the University of Wyoming (UW) are encouraged to declare, after their first semester and/or year, a major either in Business Administration AS or Accounting AS. These two degrees coincide with the requirements for the freshman and sophomore students attending the College of Business at UW. Upon completion of the degrees, students transferring to the College of Business at UW are enrolled as juniors.
