About the Area

The Area of Energy, Economics, and Law supervises the following degree and certificate program:

  • Bachelor of Business Administration in Energy Commerce

Undergraduate Program

The goal of the undergraduate program in energy commerce is to enhance leadership potential by providing a high-quality and thorough educational experience in preparation for a business career in the energy industry. The energy commerce curriculum reflects the current world energy mix, primarily hydrocarbons with some emphasis on alternatives and renewables. Energy commerce majors must take GEOL 1303 and 1101 to fulfill one of their lower-division laboratory science requirements. All lower-division business and university required courses must be completed prior to beginning the program.Due to sequencing of courses the energy commerce degree program will take two academic years to complete. Admission into the energy commerce major is competitive and based on a comprehensive review of the student’s application, writing sample, resume, and interview with a panel of energy industry professionals. A minimum 3.25 GPA is needed for consideration in the energy commerce program. Acceptance for the fall semester will be made no later than April 1 of the preceding spring semester. Visit for application information and deadlines.
