The Business Honors major will give you a solid foundation in all business disciplines. It can be easily combined with other majors. Most Canfield BHP students combine their Business Honors major with another major. Students can easily add a second business major after their freshman year in the program. Students interested in adding a major outside of the business school can consult with their Canfield BHP advisor about the process for that particular major. For students interested in combining honors degree programs, sometimes they would need to apply as an incoming freshman in order to do that. Canfield BHP has partnerships with the Department of Computer Science and the College of Liberal Arts to help facilitate combining majors for students interested in those majors. With Canfield BHP as a baseline major, your options remain flexible. Below are just a few of the more common options students select.

Canfield BHP/Pre-Law

The American Bar Association does not recommend any particular undergraduate major or specified coursework to prepare for legal education. Still, students may choose to pursue a major in a subject area recommended by law schools, such as Government, Philosophy, or Psychology.

Another option would be taking interdisciplinary coursework through certificates such as Business & Public Policy (BPP) or Ethics & Leadership. Because Canfield BHP courses stimulate analytical thinking, our graduates have a strong record of success in being admitted to top law schools.
