Most people enter college with the hope of leaving with a bachelor’s degree. College students are usually required to complete between 120 to 128 credits before being awarded a bachelor’s degree. Many people decide to transfer credits earned from associate programs available at community colleges, towards bachelor’s programs at traditional, 4-year institutions. College students must select a specific major and then complete the necessary major, elective, and general education requirements before graduating with a bachelor’s degree.

College students have the option of either completing a Bachelor of Art (BA or AB) degree or a Bachelor of Science (BS or BSc) degree.

  • Bachelor of Arts (abbreviated BA or AB)
    These programs mostly contain course requirements in the humanities, social sciences, and other liberal arts subjects.

  • Bachelor of Science (abbreviated BS or BSc)
