A minimum of 36 non-core hours must be earned in three disciplines. This includes a minimum of 12 non-core hours in each chosen discipline. At least 15 of the 48 hours must be 300 level or higher. Each discipline has its own requirements. If two concentrations share a course requirement, consult your advisor to select a substitute elective for one of the concentrations. Three disciplines are chosen from the following:

Accounting *
Art
Biblical and Theological Studies
Biblical Languages
Biology
Business *
Chemistry
Coaching **
Community Development

Education

* Of the three business department concentrations (Accounting, Business and Marketing), only one of the three may be included as an IDS concentration.

** Only ONE of these two concentrations - Coaching and Sport Management - may be included as an IDS concentration.

Students should consult the respective departments early in their sophomore year to determine the frequency that required courses are offered. Then, begin organizing a draft of future fall and spring semester schedules to insure prerequisites are completed before core and concentration requirements need to be scheduled.
