Curriculum

The Haslam undergraduate curriculum is divided into general education, pre-business core, business core and major. The first three requirements are exactly the same, regardless of the major.

Each major consists of 24-27 hours of coursework that combine two areas of emphasis. Students have a choice of obtaining either a collateral or a concentration. The collateral option consists of 15-18 hours in the primary emphasis and 9 hours in the secondary emphasis. The concentration option consists of 15 hours in the primary emphasis and 12 hours in the secondary emphasis. There are some exceptions to this structure based on the major.

Students are required to take 75 percent of their major and collateral or concentration coursework in residence at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. A minimum grade of C must be earned in every major course, including the collateral and dual concentration courses.
