Undergraduate Majors

Female student

The School of Business, Government, and Economics at SPU offers five undergraduate majors, each framed within the context of Christian values and ethics.

The major in Business Administration provides training in a broad base of management, technical, and financial skills for future leaders in business or nonprofits. Internships are an essential component of this program.

Issues covered in the Economics major reflect today's news headlines: How can trade policies reduce poverty? What role do biblical stewardship principles play in today's economies? What about global trade?

Whether you plan to serve as an accountant or a CFO, a major in Accounting will help you create and oversee everything from budgets to profit-and-loss statements – while learning the importance of professional responsibility, ethics, and servant leadership.

A major in Political Science equips you to be a leader who influences politics and public policy, informed by Christian faith. Consider one of three distinct tracks: general track, public policy and law, or international affairs.

A Global Development major equips you to make a difference in the world, in and out of the classroom. 

Combining SBGE Majors and Minors

For an even deeper experience, you may want to combine your SBGE major with an SBGE minor. With at least 15 non-overlapping credits, you may combine:

  • Accounting major and Economics minor
  • Business Administration major and Economics minor
  • Economics major and Business or Entrepreneurship minor
  • Political Science major and Business, Economics, or Entrepreneurship minor
  • Global Development major and Business, Economics, or Entrepreneurship minor

These major and minor combinations, however, are not allowed:

  • Accounting major and Business or Entrepreneurship minor
  • Business major and Business or Entrepreneurship minor
  • Economics major and Economics minor
  • Business minor and Entrepreneurship minor

Contact your faculty advisor for a more detailed explanation.

“It goes without saying, my business degree from SBGE plays a huge role in the success of my business today, but it is the relationships with students and faculty I met along the way that will never leave me. Those relationships have made all the difference.”
