Undergraduate Majors

McKenna Hall in Spring

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

Discover Your Calling


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.

Business Administration

The Business Administration major 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?

International Sustainable Development

An International Sustainable Development major equips you to make a difference in the world, in and out of the classroom, addressing some of the biggest issues that face our world today. 

Political Science

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.

Politics, Philosophy, & Economics (PPE)

A major in Politics, Philosophy & Economics (PPE) prepares you for advanced studies and broad career opportunities in vital areas such as Applied Economics, Financial Economics, International Affairs, Philosophy, Law, Public Administration, or Social Enterprise.

“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.”
