The curriculum for the major will be offered as a 45 credit hour B. A. or B. S. degree, to undergird the liberal arts framework central to the major but combine business courses and thematic tracks in the liberal arts.  Students in this major will complete a seminar sequence of 9 credit hours to integrate the professional and liberal arts components of the major which includes service learning, an internship, and an extended community-based project in the senior seminar, thus linking the learning of the content with the experience and service that characterizes the practicing social entrepreneur. The student will complete 18 hours in entrepreneurship and 18 hours in a select thematic track (Economic Development, Global Social Entrepreneurship, Contemporary Social Issues, Faith, Culture, and Ethics, or Environmental Science).
