Academic Preparation: 

While students are not required to be in a specific major, it is expected students to show competency in the area of interest before attempting a thesis project. It is recommended students complete coursework in some of the business core classes in advance of starting their thesis/ creative project.. We encourage students to connect with an FHA and potential thesis directors for additional guidance.
