Sample Plan of Study

This Sample Plan of Study represents one possible version of a new freshman Business student’s 8-semester plan.  The individual student's plan may vary depending upon the initial placement into English

Composition and mathematics. Moreover, numerous plan variations are possible if a student enters the University with advanced college credits, wishes to participate in study abroad, chooses a special program option, or selects additional majors or minors.

Note that each major/minor at the University of Miami satisfies a particular "Area of Knowledge" within the general education requirements of the University. This means that it is possible to pursue two majors or a major and a minor within the School of Business and fulfill both the STEM and People and Society Areas of Knowledge; a separate cognate in these areas would not be required. The only remaining general education Area of Knowledge would be Arts and Humanities, which must be completed through a major, minor, or cognate outside of the School of

Business.

Students construct their individualized plans in collaboration with their assigned academic advisor.
