Business Administration, Legal Studies Concentration, B.S. (120 Credits)

Enhancing the business law component that is required of all business administration majors, the Legal Studies Concentration is designed to provide students with a foundation in general legal principles and practices. The primary objective of the concentration is to provide students with a survey of criminal and constitutional law in the United States. In addition, the concentration offers students a global perspective with course work in international law. Moreover, with the widespread use of the Internet in business and society, the concentration also examines contemporary legal and ethical concerns associated with the rapidly evolving realm of cyberspace. The concentration is well suited to students planning business careers requiring insight into general legal principles and practices. Additionally, it provides a foundation for students seeking to continue the study of law upon graduation.

In August 2016, Goldey-Beacom College and Delaware Law School signed an articulation agreement offering students a pathway to law school. This partnership outlines two options for Goldey-Beacom College students which are the 3 + 3 Early Admissions Program and the Express or Guaranteed Admission Program (EGAP). These options are of particular interest to students who desire a law degree.  Admissions staff and Advisors can assist students with degree program selection who wish to pursue this opportunity.

Program Goals:

Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, students will:

  • demonstrate an ability to conduct relevant research in their field of business and/or their concentration.
  • exhibit mastery of basic business knowledge, concepts, and terminology in the specific areas of marketing, management, accounting, and finance.
  • demonstrate knowledge and skills required to obtain employment in their field.
  • develop the skills necessary to continued success in their fields including leadership abilities and a heightened sense of social responsibility and ethics.
