The Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Music Degrees prepare students for selected professions and for study at the graduate level. Each degree offers a broad range of courses in the arts and humanities, natural and social sciences, biblical studies, business, education, and allows specialization in a major field. The baccalaureate typically requires four years of full-time study to complete, although some programs may take longer.

Bachelor’s degree students must complete the minimum General Education  courses. Some courses in the list are prescribed for particular majors. To determine which alternatives to take, consult the notes after the list, the requirements for your major, and your academic advisor.
