There are a number of questions students have concerning the Construction Management program. Here we will attempt to answer some of them. If you do not find enough information, please contact your Advisor. If you do not have an Advisor, contact any of the members of the Faculty.
Construction Management Courses (CMGT)
Construction Management courses not listed above are seldom offered, and only by arrangement with the department. Internship, CMGT 493, is arranged through the department with the Departmental Internship Coordinator.
- Civil Engineering (CE)
- Engineering Science Courses (ENGR)
The BSCM specifically lists two course in mathematics to complete the program.
The first of these is MATH 147 PRECALCULUS.
MATH 147 may be taken by students scoring a 23 or higher on the ACT test, Mathematics portion, or by students scoring 540 or higher on the SAT test, Mathematics portion, or by students scoring 61 or higher on the Algebra portion of the COMPASS Math Placement Test.
Students may alternatively take MATH 143 COLLEGE ALGEBRA and MATH 144 ANALYTIC TRIGONOMETRY instead of MATH 147. The same scores on the ACT, SAT or COMPASS tests will allow a student to take MATH 143 that allow them to take MATH 147.
If a student does not score high enough on any of these tests to begin with MATH 147 they will be asked to take additional courses in Mathematics to build their skill level. See the College of Engineering Math Placement information or the Incoming Freshman Online Advising for additional information regarding which math course you should take.
Students that score 27 or higher on the ACT, or 620 or higher on the SAT, or a 51 or higher on the College Algebra portion of the Math COMPASS test may bypass MATH 147 and should sign up for Math 160 (Survey of Calculus ). If a student does not take either MATH 147 or MATH 143 & 144 they need to take an additional course in an Area II or Area III field beyond what is specifically called out in the degree requirements. Area II and Area III fields are defined in the discussion on CORE below.
MATH 147 (or MATH 144) must be successfully completed (grade of C or higher) before a student is allowed to take CE 210, 211, PHYS 111 or MATH 170.
The second required course is actually a selection of one of two. Students are required to take either MATH 160 SURVEY OF CALCULUS or MATH 170 CALCULUS I.
MATH 160 may be taken by students scoring a 27 or higher on the ACT test, Mathematics portion, or by students scoring 620 or higher on the SAT test, Mathematics portion, or by students scoring 51 or higher on the College Algebra portion of the Math COMPASS test.
If a student does not score high enough on any of these tests to begin with MATH 160 they must complete either MATH 147 or MATH 143 first.
MATH 170 may be taken by students scoring a 29 or higher on the ACT test, Mathematics portion, or by students scoring 650 or higher on the SAT test, Mathematics portion, or by students scoring 51 or higher on the Trigonometry portion of the Math COMPASS test.
If a student does not score high enough on any of these tests to begin with MATH 170 they must complete either MATH 147 or MATH 144 first.
MATH 160 or MATH 170 must be successfully completed (grade of C or higher) before a student is allowed to take ENGR 205.

As part of a University education a student is expected to learn about many areas of life, not just his/her major. The Arts & Humanities/Social Science requirement is part of the degree program to broaden the perspective and understanding of the student. This applies to students in catalog years prior to Fall 2012. Students starting Fall 2012 should follow the Foundational Studies Requirements.
A total of six (6) courses need to be taken to cover the Arts & Humanities/ Social Science CORE requirement. These courses must come from four (4) different areas of study (fields), with three (3) courses in at least two (2) fields of study from Area I and three (3) courses in at least two (2) fields of study from Area II. There is a finite list of courses that count as CORE. To look at this list go to Core Courses.
|Area I||Area I core course in one field
Area I core course in a second field
Area I core course in any field
|Area II||COMM 101 Fundamentals of Speech Communication
ECON 202 Principles of Microeconomics
Area II core course in any field
|Area III||MATH 160 Survey of Calculus OR 170 Calculus I
PHYS 111 General Physics OR
PHYS 211, 211L Physics I with Calculus and Lab
PHYS 112 General Physics OR
PHYS 212, 212L Physics II with Calculus Lab
A grade of ‘C-’ or higher is required in any course used to fulfill a core requirement.
Many of our students complete a Minor in Business along with their Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management (BSCM). The requirements, duplicated below, for the Minor in Business may be found in the Undergraduate Catalog within the College of Business and Economics.
“Students seeking a business minor must register with the Student Services Center in the College of Business and Economics. A student pursuing a major other than business at Boise State may earn a business minor by satisfying the requirements listed below, in addition to requirements of the student’s major.”
|Course Number and Title||Credits|
|ACCT 205 Introduction to Financial Accounting
ACCT 206 Introduction to Managerial Accounting
|BUSSTAT 207 Statistical Techniques for Decision Making I||3|
|ECON 201 Principles of Macroeconomics
ECON 202 Principles of Microeconomics
|GENBUS 202 The Legal Environment of Business||3|
|Successful completion of the CoBE Computer Placement Exam for: Word Processing and Spreadsheet sections OR
ITM 104 Operating Systems and Word Processing Topics AND
ITM 105 Spreadsheet Topics
|Upper-division business courses
At least two subject areas of business must be represented.
|Students must complete all courses with a grade of C or better.|
The BSCM requires students to take many of the courses listed above. These include:
- ACCT 205 Introduction to Financial Accounting
- ACCT 206 Introduction to Managerial Accounting
- BUSSTAT 207 Statistical Techniques for Decision Making I
- ECON 202 Principles of Microeconomics
- GENBUS 202 The Legal Environment of Business
To meet their Management requirement students are required to choose one course from:
- MGMT 301 Leadership Skills
- MGMT 410 Advanced Management Topics
- ENTREP 320 Entrepreneurial Skills
To meet their Labor Relations requirement students are required to choose one course from:
- HRM 305 Human Resource Management
- HRM 330 Human Resource Law
- HRM 340 Employee and Labor Relations
Using the courses required above and by choosing ECON 201 and two additional upper division Business Elective (any upper division course offered by the College of Business and Economics), one may earn a minor in business.
