The Bachelor of Commerce is a four-year specialized program and is intended for students interested in one of eleven specialized fields in business. The first two years are devoted to building a foundation in the related sciences and humanities and to learning the fundamentals of business issues, principles, and practices.

The professional and specialized aspects of the curriculum are largely concentrated in the last two years. Because of the breadth and variety of topics covered, all students must take a specified "core" of courses and then arrange a series of carefully selected and integrated courses to complete an option. For necessary core courses, see Degree Requirements. Students may contact the Commerce Undergraduate Office for more details concerning each option in the program.
