Program Description
Students may complete the first two years of study toward a bachelor's degree in business education at BSC. The curriculum is designed for teaching business education in high school. Coursework includes accounting, business communications, word processing, spreadsheet and database applications, and general education courses.
High school students planning to major in business education should study business education and technology courses.

Program Requirements
Those completing the suggested curriculum requirements earn an Associate in Science degree.

During sophomore year:
  1. Register for Introduction to Education (EDUC 250 2 credits) and Pre-Professional Experience (EDUC 298 - 1 credit). These classes should be taken during the same semester from the same instructor.
  2. Check the licensure requirements for professional educators in the state where you plan to pursue a career. Graduates planning to teach in North Dakota are prepared for initial licensure testing in conjunction with EDUC 250.
BSC has cooperative agreements with Dickinson State University and Minot State University and several other four-year institutions that allow students to continue with a bachelor's degree as a transfer option on the Business Education BSC campus. Those transferring to other institutions should consult the catalog of the transfer institution and modify BSC suggested curriculum where necessary. Contact your BSC advisor for assistance with transfer planning.

Career Opportunities
Business education majors generally become business education teachers in high schools. Teachers in this field sometimes move into the private sector, working for large firms or corporations as supervisors or trainers.
