ACCOUNTING School of Business

Lincoln Hall, Room 101 (605) 626-2400 Mr. Dwight Denman; Dr. James Kennedy; Mr. Scott Peterson (coordinator); Ms. Sara Schmidt Accounting is often referred to as the “Language of Business.” However, careers in accounting extend far beyond profit-oriented enterprises to governments, non-profit agencies, and other types of organizations. In more traditional roles, accountants perform audits, prepare taxes, and compile and analyze financial statements. Perhaps surprisingly, accountants also do a lot of other things, including forensic investigations, valuation services, information system audits, and internal audits and reviews. The range of opportunities is wide and diverse. At Northern State University there are two programs available: the 4-year Bachelor of Science program and the 150-hour Professional Accountancy program. Both programs prepare students for entry into accounting careers, but to become CPAs, candidates will need to complete the 150-hour Professional Accountancy program. Students majoring in accounting must also complete business core requirements and meet School of Business exit requirements.

About 22 courses are offered each year as well as opportunities for independent research. The biology major at NSU prepares students for diverse careers, ranging from education to industry to environmental agencies to further education and research in graduate school. Students majoring in Biology can work toward a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. Electives are chosen with the help of a faculty advisor. Freshman should take BIOL 151/151L General Biology during the first semester. General Education requirements must also be completed. The modern equipment and facilities at Northern include seven teaching and research laboratories and preparation rooms. Recent grants have provisioned the laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment for cell and molecular biology, physiology, and fieldwork. Computer workstations allow students to study advanced simulations of life processes, model ecological systems, and analyze laboratory data in an ongoing manner during classes. Enrollment caps of 25 for upper-level classes insure that students receive personal attention from faculty. Biology students are encouraged to explore their individual interests, to work closely with professors on research projects, and to present research projects at national or regional meetings and to publish work in referred scientific journals. The NSU Science Club sponsors special lectures and activities to encourage appreciation of math and science and to give students a chance for less formal interaction with faculty. The Pre-Health Professionals Network provides a forum for meeting and networking with students, interns and residents, and health professionals. A number of student scholarships are available to outstanding Biology majors. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, not financial need.

Business Administration (BS) The Business Administration major at NSU provides a comprehensive exploration of all business disciplines. This generalized business major is designed to complement the studies of those students with diverse majors in the liberal or fine arts or education, or for those students seeking flexibility in completion of a business degree. In this broad-based business major at NSU, students learn about the fundamentals of accounting, business law, finance, information systems, management, and marketing. Students gain a basic understanding of how organizations work, as well as how to make them successful. The flexibility of the Business Administration program allows students to tailor their program to their needs and interests through the use of electives in the major and the opportunity for internships to gain practical experience. A Business Administration major will help prepare the student for a career in business, government, in public or social service organizations, or provide an essential business background for those students wishing to pursue an additional (double) major outside the realm of business.

Economics
School of Business
Lincoln Hall Room 101 (605) 626-2400 Dr. Hillar Neumann (coordinator); Dr. Keun Lee; Dr. Ding Li; Dr. John E. Peterson Economic reasoning provides a rational basis for practically every decision we make, such as buying a car or house, choosing among job offers, making investments, formulating optimal government policies, or managing an enterprise. The study of economics provides a thorough understanding of the functioning of our economic system and the organization and operation of business enterprise within the system. Students of economics seek to understand the decisions of businesses, consumers, and current economic issues by developing a systematic and thorough understanding of precisely how the economic system operates. Students of economics are versatile thinkers and problem-solvers who will provide leadership in the 21st century. Economics majors gain advanced knowledge in economic reasoning and explore the major issues that confront our nation and the global community. They learn about the changing environment and life’s choices and gain competency in the areas of microeconomics, macroeconomics, monetary theory and policy, and international economics. Northern’s Economics program combines classroom discussions, simulations, case studies, and real life situations to enhance student learning.

A degree in economics from Northern State University prepares students for careers in economics, banking, insurance, brokerage, finance, corporate consulting, and government. In addition, this solid academic foundation provides successful preparation for professional and graduate programs, particularly in economics, finance, law, foreign service, labor relations, or business administration.

Dr. Lysbeth Benkert-Rasmussen (chair); Dr. Andrzej Duszenko; Dr. Elizabeth Haller; Dr. Dominique Hoche; Dr. Pen Pearson; Dr. Patrick Whiteley The English major provides a solid foundation for a wide variety of careers by preparing students to read, think, and write critically, and by offering a means to understand and appreciate the literary expression of human thought. This major provides the communications skills needed for positions in business, industry, and state and federal service. It also prepares students for professional schools in law, journalism, and medicine, as well as for graduate studies in English or linguistics. Literature courses offer students access to new ways of looking at and making sense of the world; composition courses help students process information and communicate their views effectively and persuasively; linguistics courses help students to understand the rules that make language intelligible. The internship course allows students to explore their own career preferences by applying their English skills in the context of practical challenges. Students wanting the broadest possible foundation should pursue the Bachelor of Arts, which provides the widest range of career options. Those planning to teach at the secondary level should pursue the Bachelor of Science in Education, which provides certification by the State Department of Education. Students planning to teach journalism should elect eight hours of journalism courses to meet certification requirements. Note: All English majors are required to take three semesters of a foreign language as part of their BA degree or two semesters of foreign language as part of their BSEd degree - preferably with all semesters in the same language but (in the case of the BA degree) in no more than two different languagues. Students pursuing either the major or minor should declare their intentions as soon as possible, preferably when signing up for their second-semester composition course.

While environmental science is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary program, NSU’s program is flexible to allow students to explore the areas that interest them most in this broad subject area. Students are encouraged to explore the complex interrelationships of traditional fields that impact the environment. Environmental Science students at NSU will be well- prepared for a number of careers ranging from government or industrial laboratories to conservation or to further education in graduate school. The modern equipment and facilities at Northern include seven teaching and research laboratories and preparation rooms. Students learn to operate a wide range of modern instruments, including phase contrast microscopes, microtomes, computers, ultraviolet-visible and infra-red spectrophotometers and more.

Environmental Science
As an environmental science major, a student can work toward a Bachelor of Science degree. Due to the flexible nature of the major, science electives are chosen with the help of a faculty advisor. Freshmen should take one of the major science sequence courses their first semester (CHEM 112/112L, BIOL 151/151L or PHYS 211/211L). General education requirements must also be completed. NSU students benefit from small classes and personal attention from the well-qualified faculty in the Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. Environmental science students are encouraged to explore their individual interests and to work closely with professors on research projects. Students are often able to present the results of their research at national or regional meetings and to publish their works in scientific journals. The NSU Science Club sponsors special lectures and programs to encourage appreciation of math and science and to give students a chance for less formal interaction with faculty. Scholarships for upper-class students are available through the Department of Mathematics and natural Sciences. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, not financial need.

Finance
School of Business
Lincoln Hall, Room 101 (605) 626-2400 Dr. Hillar Neumann (coordinator); Dr. Keun Lee; Dr. Ding Li; Dr. John E. Peterson Finance is critical to all business enterprise. Finance is applicable to all aspects of business and the domestic and international economy. At the micro level it is concerned with portfolio analysis, a firm’s capital structure, and risk analysis. At the macro level we study the banking system, the role of the Federal Reserve in monetary policy, and international finance and exchange rate issues. There are three main areas of finance: financial management deals with the allocation of financial resources within the firm; the investments area examines the task of choosing securities and investment portfolios; and financial institutions and markets study the allocation of financial capital in the national and global economy. The Finance major provides students with the professional tools necessary for work in domestic and international investment management, corporate financial management, and banking. The objective of the major in Finance is to provide students with a foundation of knowledge and a set of skills to enable them to perform successfully in finance-related fields. Finance majors study both the sources of capital and the uses of capital. Students of finance will study aspects of cash and financial management critical to business growth and success. Students

at Northern State University can experience hands on investment experience by participating in the Wolves Money Management program. The field of finance offers a broad and varied range of employment opportunities for the qualified individual. Many graduates are hired by financial institutions such as banks, insurance, and financial companies. Students who graduate with a major in Finance can take the Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) exam which allows for a career in money management. Additionally, the Finance curriculum prepares students for continued studies in graduate school.

They also broaden their understanding of the fifty-five different countries where French is the language of government, business, and education. In addition, French majors and minors gain a deeper understanding of English language and structure because about half of the English vocabulary was inherited from French. The French Studies program has two areas of specialization: Business French and General Studies. The Business French option may profitably be combined with a second major in Business or International Business. Students choosing the General Studies curriculum will be better prepared for careers in the liberal arts and for further study at the graduate level. Opportunities for study and internships abroad exist at all levels of the curriculum. Students may study in France through our exchange agreement with the Université de Picardie – Jules Verne for no more than it costs to attend classes in Aberdeen.

Dr. Virginia Lewis; Dr. Lysbeth Benkert-Rasmussen (chair) For historical, cultural, linguistic, and economic reasons, German is a particularly useful language for Americans. It is one of the three most widely studied languages in the world, it is a medium of communication for travelers, and it is an important research tool for scientists, scholars, genealogists, and others. Knowledge of German can also be a valuable career asset, especially when combined with additional education for careers in government, the sciences, the armed forces, travel and tourism, the media, and, increasingly, international business. The German major is offered in cooperation with the University of South Dakota and South Dakota State University. Most courses above the level of German 312 are taught as shared courses by faculty from all three universities by means of distance-learning technology. There is currently a shortage of German teachers in the midwest. All students of German are encouraged to study at a university in a Germanspeaking country for at least one semester. Northern State University has exchange agreements with universities in Magdeburg, Lüneburg, and Schmalkaklen, Germany, which enable students to study there for little more than the cost of studying at NSU. Hochschule Magdeburg has also offered our lower-level students the opportunity to participate in a very inexpensive, four-week, intensive German course offered in the summer. Our students may also participate in exchange programs provided by the University of South Dakota at German universities in Oldenburg and Jena. A student entering NSU with modern language background in highschool, may enter at a higher level -- using the criteria of 1 year high school equals 1 semester at NSU. If a C or higher is earned in a course, the student may receive credit for previous courses up through 202 for the nominal fee of $7.50 per credit. The student would need to make the request in the Registrar’s office, complete the form and pay at the finance office.

GERONTOLOGY College of Arts and Sciences
Tech Center, Room 358 (605) 626-2601 Dr. James Seeber; Dr. Mary Warner; Dr. Jon Schaff (Chair) The Associate of Arts degree in Applied Gerontology provides a foundation in general education, specialized courses, and applied internships and other practical experiences to prepare students for career opportunities working with older adults. This program delivers the academic and professional expertise required for a broad range of occupations studying aging and/or caring for the aged. It is conveniently structured for beginning students as well as for those who are currently working in this field. To ensure that good care and quality of life are made available to the growing population of seniors across the nation will require a large number of new jobs in the next decade. The AA degree program will educate students about the special challenges faced by the elderly and the many kinds of services they may need. In addition, it will train students to help seniors take on those challenges and to provide the assistance they will require. Students will understand and learn about the physical, mental, social, and spiritual needs of older people and will be given well-grounded practical information for working with seniors. This is an interdisciplinary program taught by a diverse faculty with expertise in health, physical fitness, psychology, biology, sociology, and gerontology. The courses and teaching styles are based on the principle that many issues in aging are caused by a multiplicity of agents working in disparate but reinforcing system environments. For example, physical and mental conditions clearly affect each other and only by recognizing their interactions can we increase our ability to help seniors cope with their surroundings. It is only through interdisciplinary study and analysis that students will gain the multidimensional insights and find the strategic solutions to meeting the needs of older people. The Gerontology minor is an interdisciplinary course of study that encompasses all aspects of aging from biological processes to the most complex political processes. Specifically, Gerontology focuses on the study of the process of

aging, and the effects that aging has on the individual and on society and vice versa. The minor helps students understand the complex biological, psychological, and social phenomenon of aging in preparation for careers in association with older adults (business, social services, recreation, health, government, counseling, and education).

Instead, it is the investigation of an interesting, living past that both helps us to understand our own times and offers intriguing suggestions as to what might lie ahead in the future. The history program at Northern provides a background for a variety of occupations and careers. The history major trains students to think and write critically and clearly, and offers a means of understanding American society and the world, both past and present. In addition to preparing students for careers in secondary school teaching, it provides a firm foundation for careers in business, law, journalism, publishing, government, library science, museum work, and other fields. All history majors and minors are encouraged to study a foreign language.

Make yourself stand-out by choosing a major in International Business. As the world economy has shifted from localized to a global marketplace, the demand for managers who can function effectively in an international environment has grown. An education that gives global understanding of today’s and tomorrow’s business, cultural, and political issues should go beyond just increasing one’s knowledge. It should also expand one’s experiences and lead to a career in expanding fields. The International Business program at Northern State University emphasizes the global perspective in managing organizations through the study of business, political science, and language and culture. Graduates of the program are qualified to work in multinational companies, financial institutions, joint venture operations, import-export firms, trading companies, federal and state trade agencies, export firms, or companies facing international competition. Additionally, graduates may consider a career in foreign service or find themselves well prepared for graduate school. As a part of NSU’s International Business program, students can participate in a study abroad program or overseas internship. The overseas experience broadens ones perspectives and creates personal awareness, comfort, and poise in unfamiliar situations. The international experience also helps the student develop competency in a foreign language, an essential part of the International Business program. Northern State University is privileged to be one of the six Centers for Excellence in the state university system in South Dakota. In 1997, the South Dakota Board of Regents designated Northern State University’s School of Business as a Center of Excellence in International Business, with the goal of creating a nationally recognized program in International Business. The Center has created an International Business major focusing not only on international business courses, but also on language and cultural training. The Center also provides both students and faculty the opportunity to have an international experience through exchange programs with schools in Mexico, Germany, Poland, China; international internships and conferences. Northern’s Center for Excellence in International Business also sponsors an annual International Business conference that is attended by faculty, students and business people from around the world. Northern State University’s Center for Excellence in International business provides today’s students with the scholarly and theoretical foundations to become tomorrow’s international business leaders.

Individual managers function simultaneously as a planner, a supervisor, a leader, a decision maker, an advisor, a problem solver, and an evaluator of results. Managers perform a wide range of tasks and functions requiring a mix of technical, conceptual, and human skills. A successful manager must have personal standards meriting the respect of others, an understanding of human values and motivations, knowledge of modern methodologies, and an acute awareness of the impact of economic and business policy on society. NSU’s management curriculum has been carefully designed to ensure that students will be well equipped for both the domestic and international marketplace. Northern’s Management major is a broad-based, profession education in all aspects of theory and practice. Students develop skills and insights in the areas of planning, leading, organization, control, entrepreneurship, human resources, ethics, and international management. For the students interested in developing and operating their own business, the School of Business also offers a Minor in Entrepreneurship, which greatly enhances the skills and knowledge of future entrepreneurs. A management degree prepares you for leadership positions in the management of all types of organizations in

every sector of the economy, including for-profit businesses, not-for-profit organizations (such as hospitals, charities, education, and research institutes), government, professional firms (such as accounting, consulting, legal and medical), and others. Completion of NSU’s management degree program also prepares students for advanced graduate work in business, such as the pursuit of an MBA. Management skill and expertise is required in all companies and organizations, small as well as large, and in both new ventures and established firms.

Dr. Susan Landon (director of allied health services); Dr. Alyssa Kiesow; Dr. Eric Liknes; Dr. Jodie Ramsay (chair) The medical technology student at NSU receives a solid understanding of the basic sciences (biology, chemistry and physics) as well as the clinical sciences (immunology, hematology, cytology and microbiology). The four-year program requires three years of study on campus followed by a year in a clinical setting. The senior year is devoted to clinical study and training in a laboratory in one of the following hospitals: Sioux Valley Hospital, Sioux Falls; Rapid City Regional Hospital, Inc., Rapid City; and Marion Health Center, Sioux City, Iowa. The well-qualified and enthusiastic faculty members in the medical technology program at Northern, combined with small class sizes, personal attention from instructors, and a hands-on policy with laboratory equipment, give Northern students an edge when applying for senior internships. In recent years, the medical technology program at NSU has had 100 percent acceptance of its students into the clinical portions of the programs at these hospitals. The NSU Science Club sponsors special lectures and other programs to encourage appreciation of math and science and to give students a chance for less formal interaction with faculty. The Pre-Health Professionals Network provides a forum for meeting and networking with students, interns and residents, and health professionals. As a medical technology major, a student works toward the Bachelor of Science degree. In addition to the courses required for the major, general education requirements must also be completed. A 2.8 minimum grade point average is required of all medical technology students at NSU. Scholarships for upper-class students are available through the Dept. of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, not financial need.

NSU offers four-year music scholarships to incoming freshmen and transfer students. They are awarded by auditions (dates announced in advance) held during the spring semester and awarded on the basis of academic achievement, talent, and letters of recommendation. Music scholarships are awarded to full-time students (12 credit hours or more each semester) who participate in at least one major ensemble each semester the award is in effect. One-half the total award is paid in the fall semester, one half in the spring semester. The Music Department is housed in the beautiful Johnson Fine Arts Center. The 1,000-seat theater is the setting for diverse cultural events for northeastern South Dakota and southeastern North Dakota. The fine arts center also includes classrooms, studios, and the Berggren Recital Hall. The music department has 20 practice rooms available to students, along with 40 pianos, a class piano and computer lab, electronic music lab, two large rehearsal halls, a seven-rank pipe organ, an extensive music recording library of more than 30,000 CD and long play record titles. The music education laboratory is equipped with Orff instruments and instructional materials for teacher preparation. The spacious keyboard and vocal studios on the third floor of Spafford Hall are beautiful settings for applied instruction. Performance and ensemble opportunities at NSU are numerous. Performance groups include the Concert

Choir, Chamber Singers, University/Civic Symphony, Symphonic Band, University/Concert Band, Marching Band, Jazz Ensemble, the Vocal Jazz Ensemble, and Opera scenes. In addition there are opportunities to participate in woodwind, brass percussion and chamber music ensembles. Northern has chapters of four national organizations for music students. The National Association for Music Education (MENC) encourages and promotes interest and knowledge in all areas of music education. Pi Kappa Lambda (PKL) is the music honorary society. Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI) is a fraternity for women music majors and minors who show excellence in scholarship and musical ability. Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is dedicated to the advancement of music in America. This national music fraternity is open to any male student, instructor, or administrator who shows a love for music by adopting it for his profession or by working for its advancement. NSU brings professional musicians to campus for residencies, workshops, lectures, and recitals. The NSU Band Clinic, Choral Leadership Workshop, Piano and Voice Workshops, and the South Dakota Jazz Festival feature prominent guest artists and clinicians.

Associate of Science-Paraprofessional Education Career Direction Educational Support Staff

A cooperative program by Northern State University and Black Hills State University. A major component of the No Child Left Behind act is that all teachers and paraprofessionals in K12 public classrooms must be “highly qualified”. An associate’s degree is one of the ways that a paraprofessional educator can meet the “highly qualified” requirements. Northern State University and Black Hills State University have developed the Associate of Science in Paraprofessional Education to help paraprofessional educators meet the requirements of No Child Left Behind legislation. The program consists of 64 semester credits of course work in required general education courses, education courses in classroom management, reading, child development, special education, and mathematics and electives in related academic content areas. Courses are available on campus, by correspondence or through the Internet from South Dakota’s public universities. Students should review the course listings from the Electronic University Consortium (EUC) at www.hpcnet.org/ euc for course enrollment information or contact individual university personnel regarding course schedules. Suitable electives are courses in mathematics, science, language arts, English, education, early childhood, psychology, sociology, special education, social sciences, art, music and foreign language. Courses may be taken through the EUC or on individual campuses. A minimum grade point average of 2.0 is required for completion of the A.S. in Paraprofessional Education. Students planning to complete a baccalaureate degree program for teacher certification must have a grade point average of 2.60 for admission to teacher education.

The basic laws of physics govern most of the natural phenomena of our world, and they serve as the basis for all other sciences (biology, chemistry, geology, astronomy); this makes a Physics minor valuable for any science major. The competence in critical thinking and logical processes gained in the study of physics is useful in any career a student may pursue after graduation. Graduates with backgrounds in physics pursue careers in government or the military, computer science, technological and health industries, financial services, library science, education, communication, law and medicine.

Political Science is the scientific study of government and politics. It is concerned with the ways in which the powers of government are acquired and exercised, both within and between nations. All governments regulate the behavior of their citizens and subjects, employ violence and the threat of violence to enforce these regulations, and take pains to preserve their legitimacy. But governments differ radically in how power is acquired and distributed, the purposes for which that power is used, and the constraints on the use of that power. Political science seeks to understand all these aspects of government. At Northern State University, we place special emphasis upon the following areas: 1) American Government, its characteristic institutions, principles, and political behaviors; 2) political philosophy, reasoning about the nature and purposes of government; and 3) International Relations, the study of how nations interact with one another. The political science major is designed to prepare students for careers in teaching, government service, law, and business. In addition to regular course offerings in these areas, academic credit is available for practical government experience in national, state, and local government. Although not required, political science internships offer students valuable opportunities for academic advancement and preparation for the future.

Sociology, a liberal arts degree, offers preparation for a very wide variety of career opportunities. It is not specific training for a narrow list of jobs. The list of employment opportunities for Sociology graduates is very long. An internship is not required, but is offered as valuable elective credit. Students may earn from one to 12 credits through internships at agencies that may include police; court services; social services; nursing homes; Bureau of Indian Affairs; battered women’s shelter; and many more locations.

Tech Center, Room 358 (605) 626-2601 Foreign Language Office Tech Center, Room 261 (605) 626-2404 Dr. Juan Gonzales, Dr. Lysbeth Benkert-Ramussen (chair) An understanding of Spanish and of Spanish-based culture in all of its varieties has never been more relevant, whether for travel, academic, or practical application. Spanish is fast becoming one of the most vital and vibrant specializations of post high school language instruction. In the face of present global flux, an even rudimentary knowledge of Spanish will be an asset to any career path a student may select. Northern State University offers both a major and a minor in Spanish with a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in Education degrees. Generally, 32 credit-hours are required to complete a major. To complete a minor, a minimum of 23 credit-hours are necessary. Also, prior experience in Spanish may be used to satisfy part of the requirements. A student entering NSU with previous language experience or preparation may waive entry-level courses in order to accommodate their skill and ability, based on the outcome of a placement exam. If a C or higher is earned in the course, the student may receive credit for previous courses up through Spanish 202 for the nominal fee of $7.50 per credit.

Gerber, Room 109 (605) 626-2415 Dr. Connie Geier (Interim Dean); Dr. James McAreavey; Dr. Candice Hollingsead The special education program at Northern State University prepares teacher candidates for K-12 certification in special education. Special education candidates may elect to combine their major in special education with a major in elementary, secondary, or another K-12 education program. Candidates are assigned an advisor from the Department of Special Education as soon as they declare special education as their major. Attention to diversity in classrooms is emphasized, and candidates are provided the preparation necessary to create lessons that actively involve students and meet studentsí individual needs. Extensive field experiences in K-12 classrooms under the supervision of university faculty provide students with the practical experience and assistance necessary to apply theory and best practices gained in the university classrooms. Special education candidates fulfill requirements in general education and take the Praxis I Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST) in their freshman and sophomore years; they begin professional education coursework in their junior year. Special education candidates must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.60 and a 2.60 GPA in the major. For more information regarding admission requirements and certification policies, see Teacher Education in this catalog. Special education candidates are encouraged to complete endorsements in blind and visually impaired and Braille education. Northern State University also offers a minor in special education; the minor is designed to better prepare general education classroom teachers to meet the needs of students with disabilities in the general education classroom. (NOTE: The minor does not prepare students for certification in special education.) All special education candidates earn technology proficiency certificates in e-learning. In addition, candidates may add any K-12, 7-12 or middle level endorsements to their K-12 certification.

By developing their skills in the understanding and practice of communication, students develop insight and abilities in effective expression. The major provides the skills needed for positions in education, business, industry, and government service. It also prepares students for professional schools in law, journalism, public relations, and organizational communication and for graduate studies in speech communication, rhetoric, public relations, mass media, and others. Speech courses give students an insight into the communication process, the role of language in communication, the psychology of communication, and the ethics of the communicator. Because of the intimate nature of the department, students are able to tailor experiences and projects to their special needs and interests Students planning to teach at the secondary level should pursue the Bachelor of Science in Education, which provides certification by the State Department of Education. A related speech communication minor is recommended for those students, such as English or foreign languages. Students wanting a broad-based education should pursue the Bachelor of Arts, which provides the widest range of careers .
