TCNJ Heidelberg – Academic Program

Students in any major may study in Heidelberg, but the program is a very good opportunity for majors in the TCNJ School of Business.  To help these students, we have provided program planners for

  • Accounting
  • Majors other than Accounting

(Please note:  Sophomores in School of Business majors may choose to study in either Fall or Spring semester.  Sophomores should discuss their academic needs with their advisors to determine which semester would be appropriate.  Juniors and Seniors in the School of Business should not have any difficulty in finding courses in either the Fall or Spring semesters.)
