Most marketing majors at Wingate pursue a Bachelor of Science degree over the Bachelor of Arts, but what's the difference?
The Bachelor of Science degree requires additional credit hours in math or lab science courses. This options prepares students to work with large corporations, small businesses and nonprofit agencies to develop integrated marketing campaigns or conduct in-depth data analysis.
The Bachelor of Arts degree requires additional credit hours in intermediate-level foreign language courses. Students who plan to work with diverse populations or with an international clientele might prefer this options.
