Program Overview

The Associate in Science with a focus on Business Administration from Lincoln Land Community College program equips students with the skills and knowledge needed to either go into the business administration career field or matriculate into a senior institution or bachelor degree program. Students who plan on advancing into a four-year college or university should verify the requirements needed for those senior-programs, which may vary from school to school. A student who plans on teaching business in a high school or other secondary setting must take and pass the Test of Academic Proficiency before they move onto a senior institution.

These courses include EGL 111 and 102 Composition I and II, SPE 101 Public Speaking Fundamentals, and POS 101 or 201 Introduction to American Politics or State and Local Government. These twelve credits serve as a foundation for a broader education. Courses in Life Science, Physical Science, Math, and Economics are also required.

A recommended course for this major is CAS 121 Computer Systems and Business Application.
