What if I wanted to change my major? Does that mean I would have to change schools?

I'm not sure if I want to major in business or international relations. Say that I applied to SFS and got accepted, and then found out I was more interested in business... what then?!!!!

    You don't necessarily have to change schools. You can stay in SFS and major in International Economics and then take MSB classes (maybe minor, though I'm not sure for the SFS)... if you want your degree to say BS in Business Administration, you have to TRANSFER to the MSB...

    However, there really isn't any need... you can just take as many MSB classes as you would like, assuming your schedule allows.

    You can major in International Business in the MSB. Look into it, it sounds like it would combine your two interests.

    Although I would argue that IR in the COL or any major in the SFS is much better on the international side... and you can always minor in business... like take some finance and accounting classes... and the COL has the baker scholar program (look into it) which kinda bridges COL into business...

    From the COL, you can only minor in business if you are majoring in a foreign language or linguistics, and from the SFS, you can't have a minor, but you can do a certificate program in International Business Diplomacy.

    yep, and there are sometimes limits to the number of business school classes you can take if you are in another school.

    and at georgetown you dont major in business. the b-school has a few majors like accounting, finance, etc.
