Major Changer Information

Are you a current or returning University of North Texas student thinking about switching your major to the G. Brint Ryan College of Business?

Before changing your major, you should review some qualities it takes to be a successful student in the G. Brint Ryan College of Business.

  • Strong academic record – minimum 2.7 GPA at UNT
  • Possess strong mathematical and problem solving skills
  • Enjoy working with numbers and data
  • Effective written and oral communication skills

If you do not possess these qualities, do not be discouraged. There are many opportunities to work in business. UNT has a number of parallel pathways, majors in other areas, which may help you reach your goals. Please discuss these options with your academic advisor.

If after reviewing these qualities you feel Business is right for you, or you have questions about being a Business major, you may attend one of our major changer sessions.
