Retailing Minor

B.A., B.A.A., B.F.A., B.S., B.S. in B.A. degrees

The minor in retailing is designed for those students who either aspire to a retail-related field or will work closely with the field of retailing. Examples of programs at CMU for which this minor is relevant include: Fashion Merchandising, Commercial Recreation, and Sports Studies. The minor provides an overview of retailing and merchandising principles in a managerial framework. It does not provide the practical experience developed through the retailing internship or the integrating experience of retail strategy development. Students should expect to find these skills within the major. In addition, students should not expect that the Retailing Minor will make them competitive with students whose major is Retail Management for entry level managerial positions in the retail industry.

Students should be careful to consult an advisor in order to obtain a degree schedule pertinant to the major they are pursuing. Students deviating from this schedule should be careful that prerequisites will be fulfilled in a timely manner.

To view the most accurate requirements of the degree you wish to pursue, please go to and select the year of the bulletin that applies to you, and "on campus" (unless you are taking distance learning classes, in which case you would select "off campus"). Then simply select the department and specific major and minor you are pursuing.
