The mission of the Department of Retailing is to prepare graduates for careers in the Retailing industry and Retailing-related fields which offer upward mobility via management positions.
Retailing majors may pursue a minor in any course of study offered by the College of HRSM or the University outside the Department of Retailing. College of HRSM required courses may not be counted toward a minor.
In order to enroll in the professional division of the Department of Retailing, a student must complete CMW and ARP requirements, ECON 224, SPTE 274, and RETL 261, RETL 262 and RETL 265 with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.25. Graduation requires a minimum 2.00 USC GPA.
A Bachelor of Science Degree in Retailing consists of the Carolina Core, Related Coursework, College of HRSM Required Courses, Major Coursework, Emphasis Requirements and Electives.
All courses listed under CMW, College Required Coursework, Related Coursework, Major Coursework and Emphasis Requirements must be completed with a grade of C or better.

You must choose two (2) courses in the same field. Choose from either:
The additional hours of electives may vary depending upon how students fulfill the Carolina Core requirements.
1) Adding logic courses (PHIL110, 111, 114, and 115) as an additional option for ARP: Analytical Reasoning & Problem Solving in the academic bulletin.
The Department of Retailing proposes to add logic courses (PHIL110, 111, 114, and 115) as an additional option for ARP: Analytical Reasoning & Problem Solving in the academic bulletin because these courses are expected to enhance our Retailing majors' analytical thinking ability and well prepare them for taking upper-level, advanced Retailing courses.
2) Removing "except Math 221 and 222" from ARP as those math courses are not approved CC-ARP courses.
3) Change "electives" hours from "6-14" to "2-14". This change is necessary as the required credit hours for the degree have been reduced from 124 hours to 120 hours. With the reduction, only a minimum of 2 hours of electives is needed.
