Requirements, Costs, and MoreWritten by Coursera • Updated on Dec 15, 2021A bachelor’s degree can set you on a path to break into a field you’ve always been interested in, or enhance a career you’re already in. Learning about it is the first step in getting one.What is a Bachelor’s Degree?A bachelor’s degree is an undergraduate degree in which students study a subject of their choice at an academic institution and is commonly known as a college degree. Getting a bachelor’s degree can open access to job opportunities, expose you to new ideas, and boost your earning potential.Here are some key things to know about bachelor’s degrees in the US, including how much they cost, what’s needed in an application, and whether an online or in-person experience is better for you.Here are the basics:Bachelor’s degrees typically take around four years to complete, or roughly 120 credits. Subjects of study can include psychology, computer science, business, nursing, or English, but vary widely and can be selected by the student based on their interests.Traditionally obtained in-person at a college campus, bachelor’s degrees have become increasingly easier to get online as well.Though many students pursue a bachelor’s degree immediately after high school, it is not uncommon to seek one later in life. Read more: Going Back to School: 7 Things to ConsiderIs a bachelor’s degree worth it?There are several benefits to getting a bachelor’s degree. These include a higher potential income, increased job prospects, and new and enriching life experiences. If you’ve been working for a while, a bachelor’s degree may also help you launch a new career or advance in your current one. Obtaining a bachelor’s can be the first step to getting a higher academic degree, like a master’s or a doctorate.The financial benefit of a bachelor's degree. A bachelor’s degree can be friendlier to your wallet in the long run. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that in 2021, a college graduate working full-time made a median of $1,416 a week, while high school graduates with no college experience earned a median of $789 a week [1]. That gap stretches into a significant difference over a year—a 2019 report by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York found that a college graduate earned an average of $33,000 more than a high school graduate in one year [2].Jobs you can get with a bachelor's degree. Many jobs require at least a bachelor's degree, so having a four-year degree can make you more competitive for more roles. Here are some jobs that typically require a bachelor’s degree and are expected to grow rapidly in the next ten years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics [3]:Software developersRegistered nursesFinancial managersSubstance abuse, behavioral disorder, and mental health counselorsProject management specialistsMarket research analysts and marketing specialistsMedical and health service managersRead more: What Can You Do with a Communication Degree: 10 Career PathsReady to start exploring? .

The cost of a bachelor’s degree depends on several factors, like whether the program is part of a public or private institution, in-state or out-of-state, online or in-person, and whether or not you get financial aid. Keep in mind tuition is separate from other living expenses, like housing and transportation.Private vs. public: The College Board found that one year of college, on average, costs $10,740 at public four-year institutions for in-state students and $27,560 for out-of-state students. Private nonprofit institutions cost $38,070 [4]. However, private colleges may have more institutional resources to give out as financial aid.In-state vs. out-of-state tuition: Public schools may have lower tuition if you're an in-state resident. In the US, average annual in-state tuition amounted to $9,037, and out-of-state tuition was $25,657 in the 2017-18 school year, says the NCES [5]. Online vs. in-person: The average public online bachelor's program tuition costs $38,496 for in-state students and $60,593 at private ones, according to US News—that’s total, not per year [6]. Online degrees eliminate relocation and transportation costs and offer enough flexibility for people who want to work full- or part-time.Scholarships or financial aid: Financial aid and scholarships are available for many schools. See if you’re eligible for federal financial assistance and contact your school for opportunities to start.Bachelor’s degree requirements. Enrollment requirements for bachelor’s degrees. To enroll, a bachelor’s degree program will generally require:Past grades or GPA: Some programs might require you to have gotten a certain GPA in high school—like 2.5 or 3.0—though not all do. A program’s application should state what kind of grade requirements they have.A GED or high school diploma: Most bachelor’s degree programs will require you to have completed a high school level of education. If you haven’t, you can consider other programs, like associate degrees or certificates that may not require them. Professional certificates on Coursera don’t require GEDs.Standardized test scores, like the SAT or ACT: Though some schools are dropping this requirement, many still ask for test scores. High school students typically take standardized tests in their junior or senior year before applying to colleges. Letters of recommendation: These can come from high school teachers who can speak to your good qualities and know you well. If you’ve been out of school for a while, a manager from a past or current job, a leader at your place of worship, a sports coach, or a volunteer coordinator can all provide letters of recommendation.Personal essays: Colleges could request personal essays to better understand your personal story and why you’re interested in a particular program. A course on essay writing on Coursera or elsewhere can help build your writing skills. Can’t meet all of the requirements? Associate degree programs may have laxer requirements and can still provide you with a valuable education.Requirements for finishing a bachelor’s degree. Students typically need 120 credits to graduate from a bachelor’s program in the US (roughly 180 credits at a school under a quarter system). Credits are acquired by passing classes for your major and other courses a school might require.College degrees generally take four years to complete when you're enrolled full-time, but they can take longer or shorter depending on the program you enroll in and the number of classes you take each year.Learn more: How Many Credits Do You Need to Graduate from College?Types of bachelor’s degrees. Three of the most common types of bachelor’s degrees are:Bachelor of Arts (BA): A bachelor of arts is a type of bachelor’s that typically emphasizes critical thinking, communication skills, and the humanities. Majoring in history, English, or communications will generally earn you a BA. A Bachelor of Arts may clear a path to careers that draw on human connection and critical thinking attributes—like teaching, human resources, advertising, or government work.Bachelor of Science (BS): A Bachelor of Science degree typically emphasizes quantitative skills in coursework. This means science and math degrees are generally categorized as BS degrees, making them good ways to launch a career in science or math-based fields. You can earn a BS by majoring in subjects like finance or computer science.Some subjects that have elements of both science and liberal arts, like psychology, economics, or political science, can be either a BA or a BS, depending on the types of courses you emphasize in your studies. Learn more about the difference between the two degrees.Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA): A Bachelor of Fine Arts is awarded to those who graduate with majors in fine, visual, or performing arts. Specializing in creative writing, theater, drawing, or graphic design can each lead to a BFA. If you’re interested in careers that involve the arts, like theater production or museum curator, a BFA could be a good option for you.Read more: What Can You Do with a Finance Degree? 7 Career PathsOnline bachelor’s degrees vs. On-campus bachelor’s degrees. Both online degrees and on-campus degrees offer compelling reasons for students to enroll. Here are a few factors to consider when deciding which might be better for you.Flexibility: Here's a fast fact—in 2017, the average graduate of an online degree program is thirty-two years old, according to US News, and 84 percent of them are employed as they attend school [7]. That’s likely because online degrees are more flexible. Accessing classes from home, with a wider range of time to take them, can allow students to continue working full-time, or take care of a family. Many on-campus programs also have flexible or part-time options.In-person interaction: Face-to-face interaction is essential to some people but may be less of a priority to others. How important it is might depend on certain factors like your major and what sort of experience you want out of a bachelor’s degree program. While certain majors, like computer science, may be more conducive to taking online, others like theater might be more suitable for in-person learning. Being on campus can give you many extracurricular options, but online schools can also expose you to a community of people across the country and around the globe.Here’s some good news. Online programs are constantly evolving, and many have adjusted to create opportunities to interact with other students, professors, and alumni. Online degrees can now give students the chance to work in group projects, join study groups, or network with alumni, all from behind the computer screen.Affordability: Because of lower overhead costs, online bachelor’s degrees tend to be more affordable than those on traditional campuses. Of course, factors like whether or not the college is public or private, in-state or out-of-state, and how much financial aid you receive will all affect the price of a school, whether it’s online or in-person. The good news is that you may qualify for federal aid in either case. Filling out your FAFSA can be a good place to start.Other types of college degrees. Bachelor’s degrees aren’t the only type of degree you can get. Here are others:Associate degrees: Students typically acquire associate degrees at community colleges, and take two years to complete. The costs are usually lower than a bachelor’s, and requirements are generally less competitive. An associate degree can lead to opportunities like web development or mechanical engineering, among many others.Professional certificates: Professional certificates can help you advance your career or start a new one in far less time and cost than a traditional degree program. Though not a degree by itself, certificates can be a good option for those who want to acquire new skills quickly while committing less time and money than would be spent on a degree. Master’s degree: A master’s degree is a postgraduate degree—meaning it’s a degree you get after completing an undergraduate degree. Those who have completed their bachelor’s and want to advance in their current field, or want to pivot to a new one, might consider getting a master’s. Master’s degrees generally take anywhere from one year to two years for full-time students, depending on the program and field. They can open up paths to careers like clinical social work or psychiatry. Learn more about the differences between Master of Arts (MA) degrees and Master of Science (MS) degrees.Doctorate: Also known as a PhD, a doctorate is a postgraduate degree that you can get to become a recognized expert in a field. A doctorate will be useful for a profession that involves intense research, like a scientist, college professor, or researcher at a think tank. PhDs can take as short as four years to obtain, but generally take around eight.Ready to start exploring?

Earning a college degree is a great way to improve your job prospects. In fact, data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that an advanced level of education can lead to higher wages and lowered unemployment rates. Depending on your career aspirations, you can choose from six different college degrees.Associate Degree. (Usually 60 credit units)These degrees usually contain a lot of general education classes, like college math, English, and economics. This is the basic degree that’s most commonly offered at community colleges and that historically takes two years to complete.Bachelor’s Degree. (Usually 120 credit units)These degrees are considered the standard college degree and usually take four years to complete at the rate of 15 credits per semester. The first half of the degree usually overlaps with common associate degree courses, called general education electives. Bachelor’s degrees also include more major-related classes and 6 to 27 hours of free electives.Under the main bachelor’s degree category, you have several two-letter codes (sometimes followed by a specialization) that tell you the degree’s specialty. Here are a few common ones:BA — Bachelor of ArtsBS — Bachelor of ScienceBSBA — Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (or BBA, Bachelor of Business Administration)BE — Bachelor of EngineeringMaster’s Degree. (Usually 30–50 credit units)Also called a graduate degree, this degree is the next step after a bachelor’s degree. Since a master’s degree is usually more specialized, you can’t get a master’s degree unless you first have a bachelor’s degree. Thus if you have a bachelor’s degree in business, your master’s degree would be in a more detailed topic, like accounting, taxation, or business administration. The original idea was that people would earn more and more honors as they got more focused and specialized in one area of study. All master’s degrees conveniently start with M. The most common are MBA, MA, MS, and MFA.Doctoral Degree. (Usually 60 credit units)PhD stands for Doctor of Philosophy. Almost all schools require a completed master’s degree before you can start a PhD. A PhD. means you have conducted significant original research on a certain topic and have written something academic on it (called a dissertation or thesis). Before a doctoral degree is awarded, there is usually a review by a group of doctoral peers. In many fields, the PhD is considered a “terminal degree.” That means it’s the end of the academic line, and you can’t get any more training in that field beyond a PhD. A few fields have lower terminal degrees; in law, a Juris Doctor is a terminal degree, and there usually is no PhD.Professional Degree. (Usually 60–120 credit units)A professional degree is designed to prepare bachelor’s degree holders for work in a specific field. Professional degrees are offered for various industries, such as architecture, landscape architecture, chiropractic, dentistry, engineering, law, pharmacy, medicine, veterinary medicine, and education. Upon completion of the program, graduates are often eligible to pursue accreditations or sit for licensing exams in their fields. Examples of professional degree licenses include medical licenses, law licenses, and pilot’s licenses.   Joint Degree. (Usually 120 or more credit units)Joint degree programs (sometimes referred to as a double major) are designed for students interested in graduating with two college diplomas. Coursework for both majors is taken simultaneously, which allows graduates to complete both degrees at the same time, as opposed to one after the other. Students who choose a joint degree often take 40 general education credits, 40 credits for their first major, and 40 credits for their second major; however, each institution has its own credit hour requirements. If you’re considering a joint degree, be sure to ask your college adviser about the specific requirements for your school. Choose a Degree That Fits Your Career Path. Each college has subtle differences, particularly with bachelor’s degrees and their requirements. Colleges also have different accreditation policies, depending on what system a school uses. Higher education has also changed a lot in the past few years, so take some time to learn how recent college changes impact your education. Recommended Readings:How to Find Online Classes While You’re Social DistancingWhat Level of Education Do I Need?What I Wish I Had Known About Getting Into Grad SchoolSources:Indeed, When a Professional Degree will Help You Advance in Your CareerUniversity World News, “The Case for Evolving from Dual to Joint Degrees”U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Learn More, Earn More: Education Leads to Higher Wages, Lower Unemployment”Pearson Accelerated PathwaysWe think college can be affordable, flexible, and purposeful.

DegreeBy Indeed Editorial TeamFebruary 3, 2021TwitterLinkedInFacebookEmailCopy to ClipboardOne choice students entering college can make is to choose between two different types of bachelor degrees: a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science. Sometimes your chosen major will only be available as either a B.A. or a B.S. degree, but many majors give you the option of choosing either. In this article, you will learn everything you need to know about the similarities and differences between a B.A. and B.S. degree and how to choose the degree option that is best for you.What is a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree?A Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree is focused more on the theoretical knowledge of the major you are studying and aims to develop communication and writing skills. A B.A. degree allows you to take more courses outside of your chosen major and can help you get a broader level of understanding of your major. A B.A. degree is common for majors that fall into the fields of communication, languages, humanities and social sciences.What is a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree?A Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree is focused more on the specialized technical knowledge of the major you are studying and aims to develop analytical and problem-solving skills. A B.S. degree requires you to take more courses focused on your chosen major and can help you get a more in-depth understanding of your major. A B.S. degree is common for majors that fall into the fields of mathematics or science such as engineering, health services and computer science.Related: Guide: How to Get a Job After CollegeAre there areas where a B.A. and B.S. degree overlap?There are several areas in which a B.A. and B.S. degree are similar. To begin with, both degrees are four-year, undergraduate bachelor level degrees. Both degree types will be made up of a combination of courses falling into the categories of general education, electives and major courses. The difference is between how many credits are required within each category.There are many areas of study that can apply to both a B.A. and a B.S. degree such as psychology, computers, public speaking, accounting and business courses. Both degree types also usually receive an equal level of respect after completion and you can use both degree types to pursue graduate-level degrees such as a master’s or doctorate.Related: When a Professional Degree Will Help You Advance in Your CareerIs a B.A. degree or B.S. degree better?Because B.A. and B.S. degrees are valued equally at the academic and professional level, the answer to which degree type is better is personal to the individual getting the degree. One of the easiest ways to choose between the two degree types is to think about both your academic and professional goals and how each type of degree will help you achieve those goals. For example, if your goals involve being able to get a broader understanding of your major, explore more courses that aren’t related to your major and follow a career path that benefits more from theoretical knowledge such as teaching, then a B.A. degree would likely be better for you. If your goals involve obtaining a position in a highly technical field such as nursing after you complete your degree, then a BS degree is probably a better fit for you.Related: Master’s Degree: Definition, Elements and BenefitsHow to choose between a B.A. and B.S. degree. Follow these steps to help you determine whether a B.A. or B.S. degree is right for you:Consider the types of classes you have enjoyed in the past.Determine what you are interested in majoring in.Determine which career path you would like to pursue.1. Consider the types of classes you have enjoyed in the past. Thinking about the classes you have enjoyed throughout your primary education can help you decide whether you would be more successful in getting a B.A. or a B.S. degree. Because this choice will have a strong influence on the courses you take, it is important to consider the types of courses you are interested in, like and have naturally performed well in throughout your educational career. If you have always preferred courses such as English, Arts, Languages and Humanities, then a B.A. degree may be right for you. If you have always been a student that preferred courses such as Math and Science, then a B.S. degree may be better for you.2. Determine what you are interested in majoring in. The major you choose can have a significant impact on the type of degree you can get. Some majors are only available in B.S. degrees because they lead to careers in more technical fields such as nursing and engineering. You should also consider whether you will want to continue to pursue a graduate-level degree, and if so what type of graduate degree, as graduate programs may have specific requirements for the type of undergraduate level degree you need to be considered for the program.3. Determine which career path you would like to pursue. Some students enter college knowing exactly what career path they want to pursue once they graduate while others enter college not sure which career path they want to pursue or even what they want to major in. Students who know exactly what career path they want to pursue may find a B.S. degree to be a better fit because it will allow them to get an in-depth understanding of the technical and practical aspects related to that career. Students who know the type of career they want to pursue or that they are interested in but don’t know exactly what they want to do upon graduation may find a B.A. degree to be a better fit because it will allow them to be more exploratory throughout their studies.Related Articles.

Florida State University confers at the bachelor’s level the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Music Education, Bachelor of Social Work, and the Bachelor of Science degrees, the requirements for which are described in detail below. Students may find requirements for all graduate degrees (master’s, specialist, professional, and doctoral) in the Graduate Bulletin. Students pursuing a baccalaureate degree at Florida State University must meet numerous state- and University-wide degree requirements as they progress through their course of studies. In general, freshman and sophomore students in most majors emphasize work in a broad-based liberal arts curriculum, described below as Liberal Studies for the 21st Century, and in consultation with their advisors select a major concentration. By the end of the sophomore year, all students should have completed at least half of the General Education portion of the Liberal Studies for the 21st Century program, including the English Composition and Quantitative and Logical Thinking requirements. Around the end of the sophomore year (fifty-two degree hours), students formally select a major and request acceptance by the college in which the major is taught. Students transferring into the University with an Associate of Arts (AA) degree from a Florida public community college or university, or transferring fifty-two or more semester hours of credit, are eligible to be admitted directly into the college of their choice provided they meet minimum requirements for the major selected. Students at the junior and senior level complete the requirements of their chosen major and often of a minor field. They may also have to fulfill additional requirements specific to their college and/or certification requirements to engage in a particular profession for which their undergraduate major is preparatory. Understanding these degree requirements is crucial to the smooth progression to graduation. Students are encouraged to consult with their academic advisors regularly throughout their undergraduate years to ensure that they are making appropriate progress toward their degree and to consult their academic deans’ offices, Advising First, and the Office of the University Registrar for assistance and clarification of degree requirements. Baccalaureate Degree Requirements. Florida State University will confer the bachelor’s degree when the following conditions have been met. Restrictions may be found under ‘Transfer Credit’ in the “Academic Regulations and Procedures” chapter of this General Bulletin. Satisfactory completion of Florida State University’s Liberal Studies requirements with a minimum overall adjusted grade point average of 2.0. The Liberal Studies Program Requirements are divided into two curriculum segments: General Education and University-Wide Graduation Requirements, which encompass all state requirements. A full discussion of these requirements can be found in this chapter below, under the “Liberal Studies for the 21st Century Program”. Satisfactory completion of major requirements in a chosen degree program, including additional requirements set by the college offering the degree. The student’s degree program will appear on the baccalaureate diploma. A list of degree programs is available in the “Academic Degree and Certificate Programs” chapter of this General Bulletin. Major names are not printed on university diplomas. A minimum adjusted grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 on all coursework taken at Florida State University is required for a degree. In addition, the overall GPA on all college-level work attempted (high school dual enrollment, transfer and FSU coursework) is used as part of the determination of degrees of distinction. See the “Degrees of Distinction” section of this chapter for more information. Successful completion of a minimum of one hundred twenty unduplicated semester hours. Physical education activity courses may count as elective credit except in cases where an individual degree program places a specific limit. Completion of at least forty-five semester hours in courses numbered 3000 and above, thirty of which need to be taken at Florida State University. Completion of the last thirty semester hours and half of the major course semester hours, in residence at this University. In cases of emergency, a maximum of six hours of the final thirty semester hours may be completed by correspondence or residence at another accredited institution with the approval of the academic dean. College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) credit earned may be applied to the final thirty-hour requirement provided that the student has earned at least thirty semester hours credit at Florida State University. Students who have entered a university in the State of Florida, Division of Colleges and Universities, with fewer than sixty hours of credit in the fall of 1976 or any time thereafter are required to earn at least nine hours prior to graduation by attendance in one or more Summer terms at one of the State University System institutions. The University President may waive the application of this rule in cases of unusual hardship to the individual. Students may request waivers of this requirement by giving the details of their hardships through their academic deans to the Vice President for Faculty Development and Advancement. Prior to 2011, students who had earned nine semester hours of credit through approved acceleration methods (AP, IB, CLEP, and approved dual enrollment courses) were exempt from the summer residency requirement. Effective 2011, this exemption is no longer available. Satisfaction of the foreign-language admissions requirement by having two sequential units of the same foreign language in high school, or eight semester hours of the same foreign language in college, or documented equivalent proficiency. Successful completion of the Civic Literacy requirement. Successful completion of coursework constituting the student’s program of studies, minor, honors thesis, or certification examination does not guarantee the awarding of the baccalaureate degree. Faculty judgment of the academic performance of the student is inherent in the educational process in determining whether the awarding of the baccalaureate degree or admission into a higher level degree program is warranted. Note: For the purpose of establishing residency, the various Summer sessions are considered one semester. Following is a full discussion of state- and University-wide degree requirements at the undergraduate level. Requirements specific to a particular college may be found in the section of this General Bulletin describing that college. Major and minor requirements may be found under the appropriate department in the departmental listings. State Mandated Academic Learning Compacts (SMALCs). The State Board of Governors has directed each university to develop Academic Learning Compacts for every baccalaureate degree program. A State University System Academic Learning Compact (SMALC) identifies for each academic bachelor’s program what students will learn by the end of a program and how knowledge is measured above and beyond course grades. A SMALC must pinpoint the core learning expectations in the areas of communication, critical thinking skills, and content/discipline knowledge and skills. Additionally, it must identify the corresponding assessments used to determine how well the student has assimilated the articulated expectations. Successful performance related to the State Mandated Academic Learning Compacts specific to your degree is a requirement for graduation. Visit https://provost.fsu.edu/outcomes/smalcs-report/ to view the current version of the SMALCs for your degree. Simply select your major and detailed information is provided. You may also obtain information pertaining to SMALCs by contacting the academic departments. Division of Undergraduate Studies. Dean: Joseph O’Shea Associate Deans: Craig Filar, Sara Hamon, Lynn Hogan, Nikki Raimondi, Annette Schwabe; Assistant Deans: Heather Bishop, DeOnte Brown, Kacy King, Allison Peters The Division of Undergraduate Studies is responsible for the supervision and monitoring of state- and University-wide degree requirements as well as University-wide academic support offices. Overseen by the Dean of Undergraduate Studies, the division includes the Office of Undergraduate Studies (the academic home of most freshmen and sophomores), Advising First, the Center for Academic Retention and Enhancement (CARE), the University Honors Program, Transfer and Information Services, the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE), the Office of National Fellowships, and the Center for Undergraduate Research and Academic Engagement. For further information on these academic support offices see ‘Honors Program’ in the “University Honors Program and Honor Societies” chapter and ‘Advising First’, the ‘Center for Academic Retention and Enhancement’, ‘Center for Undergraduate Research and Academic Engagement’, and ‘Transfer and Information Services’ in the “Academic Advising and Support Services” chapter of this General Bulletin. Freshmen and sophomores have their programs and coursework supervised by the Office of Undergraduate Studies. Exceptions to this placement are students accepted into the College of Music, College of Motion Picture Arts, or into the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program in theatre or dance. Students in these majors are advised and supervised directly within their own schools or departments. The Office of Undergraduate Studies is the dean’s office that administers the academic and advisement program, regardless of intended major, for all other freshman and sophomore students. Liberal Studies for the 21st Century Program. The Liberal Studies for the 21st Century program provides an educational foundation that enables FSU students to thrive in and beyond the classroom. Across the program, students build the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in the major and life after college. Liberal Studies courses help FSU students become: Critical analysts of quantitative and logical claims Critical readers and clear, creative, and convincing communicators Critical analysts of theories and evidence about social forces and social experience Critical analysts of theories and evidence about historical events and forces Thoughtful patrons of and participants in cultural practices Ethically engaged citizens and logical thinkers Effective interpreters of scientific results and critical analysts of claims about the natural world Analytical and flexible thinkers and life-long learners) Clear, creative, and convincing communicators Critical thinkers, creative users of knowledge, and independent learners Culturally conscious participants in a global community Culturally literate members of a society Skilled users of discipline-appropriate technologies Flexible and proficient oral communicators Flexible and proficient writers for professional purposes Statewide Requirements. College-Level Communication and Computation Requirement. The State of Florida mandates minimum communication and computation skills for all students in Florida public institutions of higher education. The Statewide General Education Core and the University-wide requirements are designed to meet these requirements. The statewide graduation requirements of these rules follow. Students will satisfy the requirements of this rule by completing, with a grade of “C–” or higher in each course, the General Education requirements in Quantitative and Logical Thinking, English Composition, and two other approved courses that require college-level writing for a total of six additional writing credits. The six additional writing credits may be fulfilled through successful completion of approved “W” (State-Mandated Writing) or E-Series courses. These requirements must be completed prior to receipt of an Associate of Arts degree from Florida State University. Credit by Examination. A student shall be allowed to partially satisfy the State mandates for communication and computation by earning academic credit for approved Quantitative and Logical Thinking, English Composition, or “W” (State-Mandated Writing) coursework with a passing score on an appropriate AP, IB, AICE or CLEP examination. Refer to the AP, IB, AICE, and CLEP Tables in the “Academic Regulations and Procedures” chapter of this General Bulletin for college course equivalents and credits earned. Students will still be required to take ENC 2135 (or an approved 2000-level ENC composition course) to meet FSU requirements for English Composition and General Education. Transfer Credits or Correspondence Credits. Students transferring to Florida State University who have been certified by Florida State University as having completed the AA degree from a Florida public university, state college, community college, or other college with which Florida State University maintains an official articulation agreement are deemed to have satisfied the State mandates for communication and computation and Florida State University’s General Education requirements. Students transferring from other institutions that come under the provision of these State mandates, but who have not received the AA degree will be deemed to have satisfied the State mandates for General Education if the previous institution indicates, by notation on the transcript or by some other form of written certification, that the student has satisfied these State mandates before leaving that institution. Transferring students who do not fall into either of the above categories will be required to satisfy Florida State University’s plan for State mandates. Statewide General Education Core. The State of Florida Statute 1007.25 regarding General Education was revised in 2012 and again in 2013 to “improve articulation and reduce excess hours” for students entering the State University System (SUS) and Florida College System (FCS). Information on the statute, the implementation process, and the decisions made is posted on the official Website at http://www.fldoe.org/policy/articulation/general-edu-core-course-options.stml. The Statewide General Education Core requirements apply to students initially entering the SUS or FCS in the 2015-2016 academic year and thereafter. Fifteen (three credit hours from each category) of the thirty-six General Education credits must be earned from the five Statewide General Education Core requirement categories (at FSU, these are: English Composition, Quantitative and Logical Thinking, Social Sciences/History, Humanities and Cultural Practice/Ethics, and Natural Sciences). All SUS and FCS institutions must accept these courses for transfer credit, but no institution must offer all courses. Civic Literacy. Students first entering any Florida College System institution or State University System institution as degree-seeking undergraduates in the 2018-2019 school year and thereafter must demonstrate competency in civic literacy prior to receipt of the baccalaureate degree. This includes transfer students and students seeking a second bachelor’s degree who began as degree-seeking undergraduates at any FCS or SUS institution in the 2018-2019 school year or thereafter. Students may satisfy the state of Florida’s Civic Literacy requirement by: (1) completing either POS 1041, American Government: National, or AMH 2020, History of the United States Since 1877, with a grade of “C–” or higher; (2) receiving credit for either POS 1041 or AMH 2020 through completion of one or more of the following: Advanced Placement Government and Politics: United States exam with a score of 3 or more, Advanced Placement United States History exam with a score of 4 or more, or CLEP American Government exam with a score of 50 or more; or (3) obtaining a score of 60 out of 100 on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Naturalization Test administered by a Florida College or University. This exam is administered at no cost at the Testing Center at Florida State University. Visit https://liberalstudies.fsu.edu/civic-literacy.html for the most recent guidance on meeting the Civic Literacy requirement. Liberal Studies for the 21st Century General Education Requirements.

The General Education requirements must be met by completion of appropriate coursework or by combination of coursework and credit by examination within the limits set below: Credit by Examination. A maximum of thirty semester hours of credit earned through examination may be applied to the General Education requirements. Coursework. An overall 2.0 average or higher is required for coursework used to satisfy the General Education requirements. To satisfy state mandates and University-wide requirements, students must also earn a grade of “C–” or higher in each of the courses used to fulfill the General Education requirements in Quantitative and Logical Thinking, English Composition, and two approved courses that require college-level writing. These two additional college-level writing courses may be fulfilled through successful completion of approved “W” (State-Mandated Writing) or E-Series courses. Students with an AA degree or General Education Statement from a Florida public university, state college, community college, or other colleges with which Florida State University maintains an official articulation agreement are exempt from the state mandates for college-level writing. Courses listed as “directed individual study” (DIS), “senior honors thesis,” or “senior seminar” cannot apply to the General Education requirements. No courses taken on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory (S/U) basis may apply to the Liberal Studies requirement, with the exception that a single course that counts as a designated Formative Experience may be awarded an S/U grade. A student who transfers to Florida State University from a Florida public community/state college or other articulated institution will be deemed to have satisfied the University’s General Education requirement if all General Education requirements stipulated by the community/state college or other articulated institution have been met and the student’s transcript has been so marked. If a course taken at FSU was approved for Liberal Studies credit at the time a course is completed, it will count for Liberal Studies credit, even if the course was not listed as a Liberal Studies course in the General Bulletin under which the student entered. Students should check departmental curriculum listings to determine prerequisites and potential course duplications prior to taking courses. In addition, students may search for current Liberal Studies listings here: http://liberalstudiescourses.fsu.edu/care/LS-courses/course-display.php. Finally, it is important to note that designations and approved courses may change periodically. An up-to-date listing of designations can be found on the Liberal Studies website and all appropriate designations are indicated in the course syllabus for individual courses. Note: Some students will be required to take preparatory coursework prior to enrollment in Quantitative and Logical Thinking and/or English Composition courses. See ‘Required Preparatory Courses’ in the “Academic Regulations and Procedures” chapter of this General Bulletin. Liberal Studies for the 21st Century Curriculum.

Students should refer to the course descriptions of each department for specific credit information before registering for these courses. University-Wide Curriculum. “W” (State-Mandated Writing) and E-Series Courses. To satisfy the state writing mandates, students must complete two approved three-credit college-level writing courses beyond the six hours required for English Composition. These two additional college-level writing courses may be fulfilled through successful completion of “W” (State-Mandated Writing) or E-Series courses. Transfer students who entered the University without having completed the General Education requirements elsewhere or who have not completed an articulated AA degree must complete two approved courses that meet the State-Mandated Writing requirement. To fulfill the college-level writing requirement, students must earn a grade of at least a “C–” in the course, and also earn at least a “C–” average on the required writing assignments. If a student does not earn a “C–” average or higher on the required writing assignments, the student will not earn an overall grade of “C–” or higher in the course, no matter how well the student performs in the remaining portion of the course. Students with an AA degree or General Education Statement from a Florida public university, state college, community college, or other colleges with which Florida State University maintains an official articulation agreement are exempt from the state mandates for college-level writing. Florida State University has developed E-Series courses that focus on broad questions that are relevant to humanity and our natural world and can be explored, examined, and experimented upon (thus, E-Series). E-Series courses are designed to foster critical thinking by allowing students to analyze persistent issues from multiple perspectives. All E-Series courses count toward the “W” (State-Mandated Writing) requirement. To fulfill the college-level writing requirement, students must earn a grade of at least a “C-” in the course and also earn at least a “C-” average on the required writing assignments. If the student does not earn a “C-” average or higher on the required writing assignments, the students will not earn an overall grade of “C-” or higher in the course, no matter how well the student performs in the remaining portion of the course. This course may also fall into one of the core General Education and/or Scholarship in Practice areas. Check the Liberal Studies website for the most recent information and to find an approved list of E-Series courses: https://liberalstudies.fsu.edu/. “W” Courses.

To satisfy this requirement, students will be required to take one course from each of the two categories described below. All students are required to complete at least one Scholarship in Practice course and one approved Formative Experience, with the following exceptions: students who have completed an AA degree from an articulated institution (including those who have completed a high school AA degree from an articulated institution) and transfer students who enter the University with sixty or more credit hours are only required to complete either one Scholarship in Practice or one Formative Experience course. The Scholarly and Formative Experiences requirement must be completed prior to the receipt of the baccalaureate degree. Scholarship in Practice courses are classroom-based experiences that allow students to apply relevant areas of scholarship to an original project. A Scholarship in Practice course must be completed with a grade of “C–” or higher prior to the receipt of the baccalaureate degree. A Scholarship in Practice course at any level will count towards the graduation requirement. Formative Experiences are a type of hands-on, high impact practice through which students engage in independent, immersive learning settings outside the classroom that are relevant to their educational, professional, and life goals. Student participation in Formative Experiences must be evaluated by an instructor of record (faculty or qualified staff). Formative Experiences must be completed with a grade of “C–” or higher (or an “S” if taken on an S/U basis) in an approved course or through successful completion of the Experience Recognition Program through the FSU Career Center prior to the receipt of the baccalaureate degree. Students may satisfy the Formative Experience requirement by completing a second Scholarship in Practice course.

Students will develop effective oral communication skills through the use of public speaking activities in courses designed to provide instruction and ample opportunities for guided practice in oral communication. Through these courses, students master the kinds of oral communication that are appropriate for their academic or professional majors and future leadership roles. In order to meet the Oral Communication Competency requirement students must attain a grade of “C-” or higher in an approved Oral Communication Competency course. Oral Communication Courses.

All undergraduates at Florida State University must demonstrate basic computer competency prior to graduation. The computer competency requirement may be satisfied in one of two ways: Earn a grade of “C–” or higher in a course(s) that has been approved by the Liberal Studies Coordinating and Policy Committee for computer skills competency in the major; or Have a prior course, passed with a grade of “C–” or higher, certified by the student’s major department as equivalent to the courses approved for computer skills competency in the major The specific computer competency skills needed vary from discipline to discipline, and while a minimum level of competency is required, means of assessing such competency must remain flexible. Thus, associated with each major is a required course(s) that provides instruction in the discipline-specific computer skills, and students passing this course(s) with a grade of “C–” or higher will be considered to have completed the requirement. The list of required courses for each major will include at least one course flagged as satisfying the computer skills requirement. Students should check with their major department to identify the course(s) designated by the department as satisfying the computer skills competency in the major. Transfer Credit and Liberal Studies for the 21st Century . The Office of Undergraduate Studies evaluates transfer credits as they apply to the courses within the General Education and State-Mandated Writing requirements of the Liberal Studies for the 21st Century program and the Civic Literacy requirement. Students with the AA degree or General Education Statement from a Florida public university, state college, community college, or other colleges with which Florida State University maintains an official articulation agreement are exempted from the General Education and State-Mandated Writing courses within the Liberal Studies for the 21st Century program. However, transfer students will be required to complete graduation requirements as specified in this chapter of the General Bulletin, with the following exceptions: transfer students who have earned sixty or more hours will only be required to take one Scholarship in Practice or Formative Experience course and one Diversity course (either an “x” or “y”). Visit https://liberalstudies.fsu.edu/civic-literacy.html for the most recent guidance on meeting Civic Literacy. Progression to Upper Division. For progression to upper-division status at Florida State University, a student must meet the following minimum requirements: Completion of at least fifty-two semester hours of college credit Achievement of a minimum GPA of 2.0 on all work attempted at Florida State UniversityNote: Some degree programs require a higher GPA for admission to upper-division status. Students who began college work prior to October 15, 1982 must complete a minimum of one-half of the required semester hours from the required General Education curriculum, including English Composition and undergraduate mathematics (computation). Students who began their college-level work on or after October 15, 1982 and prior to Summer C semester 2015 must complete a minimum of one-half of the required semester hours from the General Education curriculum, including the completion of State mandates and University-wide requirements for specific coursework in writing and computation. A minimum grade of “C–” is required in each of the courses used to fulfill the General Education requirements in computation and English Composition. Students who began their college-level work on or after the start of Summer C semester 2015 must complete a minimum of one-half of the required semester hours from the General Education curriculum, including the completion of all State-mandated computation coursework and the two required English composition courses (ENC 1101 and ENC 2135). A minimum grade of “C–” is required in each of the courses used to fulfill the General Education requirements in Quantitative and Logical Thinking and English Composition. Acceptance by a college for admission to a degree program Transfer from a lower-division major advisement program to an upper-division degree program is completed by the student’s baccalaureate dean after the student has declared a choice and has been declared eligible for transfer under the above requirements. Transfer from undergraduate studies directly into a baccalaureate degree program is accomplished between the Office of Undergraduate Studies and the appropriate baccalaureate dean under the same conditions. All transfer students admitted to the University who do not meet the above requirements for admission to an upper-division degree program (except those students majoring in music, dance, or the BFA in theatre) and who have fewer than fifty-two semester hours of transferable credit will be assigned to the Division of Undergraduate Studies. Students with fifty-two or more semester hours of transferable credit will be assigned to the lower-division major advisement program under the appropriate baccalaureate dean unless they request assignment to the Division of Undergraduate Studies. Students requesting assignment to Undergraduate Studies must do so through the undergraduate admissions office at least one month prior to registration. All students, including transfer students, must have met the requirements for transfer from the Division of Undergraduate Studies by the time they have attempted a total of seventy-five semester hours of college work. Transfer Among Colleges for Upper-Division Students. For an upper-division student to change colleges within the University, the student must meet the following requirements: Obtain a signed approval form from the dean of the college to which the student wishes to transfer. The original copy of the approved change form, or notification from the academic dean, must be submitted to the Office of the University Registrar. The academic dean’s office of the new college may choose to process the major change within the student system and retain the documentation within their office. Students seeking to add a second major must be on-track with the milestones of the intended second major based on their current map term (or one fewer) at the point the second major is added. However, the mapping status of the second major will not be monitored afterwards. If the primary major is considered a “limited access,” students must have approval from their current department before a second major can be added. All second majors must be declared/added by the end of the semester in which a student will earn ninety cumulative credit hours toward their degree program at Florida State University. The Associate of Arts. The Associate of Arts (AA) degree may be granted through the Division of Undergraduate Studies to students who have completed sixty semester hours with an adjusted GPA of 2.0 or higher at Florida State University and an overall 2.0 GPA on all college work attempted. A minimum of twenty of the last thirty semester hours of work must be earned in residence. Successful completion of the General Education portion of the Liberal Studies for the 21st Century program with a 2.0 GPA or higher is required for the AA degree. Students beginning their college program January 1983 or later must also meet state mandates and University-wide requirements for specific coursework in writing and computation. Students interested in receiving the AA degree from FSU and who are completing or have completed all the requirements must officially apply at the Office of Undergraduate Studies. Students cannot apply for both an AA degree and a bachelor’s degree to be awarded in the same semester. Also, the Associate of Arts degree cannot be awarded once a bachelor’s degree has been conferred. The awarding of the AA degree from Florida State University does not alter the calculation of the cumulative GPA at Florida State University. Certification for the AA degree in no way affects the requirements of individual colleges for the completion of the major/minor for a baccalaureate degree. FSU students who transfer more than 30 hours from a single FCS institution may also be eligible to receive an AA degree from their home FCS institution if the student has earned at least a combined total of 60 semester hours, including 30 or more semester hours from the home FCS institution with an overall cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. However, students may NOT receive an AA degree from both FSU and the home FCS institution. Students are notified by FSU about this option to receive the AA degree through this reverse transfer agreement. Once notified, students must consent to FSU sharing their information with the home FCS institution regarding this option. Once consent is given, FSU will inform the appropriate FCS institution about the student’s interest in receiving an AA degree and provide any applicable information. Educator Preparation. Students planning to enroll in an Educator Preparation program at Florida State University must: (1) complete all University Liberal Studies requirements; (2) take and pass the General Knowledge portion of the Florida Teacher Certification Exam (FTCE); and (3) acquire a passing score on the Professional Education and Subject Area tests of the Florida Teacher Certification Exam (FTCE) prior to the final term internship and graduation. Students must also complete: (1) specified degree prerequisites referred to in the appropriate program chapters of this General Bulletin; (2) specific admission criteria described in the “Admissions” and “College of Education” chapters of this General Bulletin; and (3) the “Baccalaureate Degree Requirements” described earlier in this chapter of the General Bulletin. Students should note that all undergraduate Educator Preparation programs in the College of Education are combined BS/MS degree programs. Students must consult with an advisor to determine how to simultaneously satisfy Florida State University’s Liberal Studies requirements and the teacher preparation general education core curriculum requirements. The Baccalaureate Degree. Florida State University’s general requirements for all baccalaureate degrees (bachelor’s degrees) are listed at the beginning of this chapter under “Baccalaureate Degree Requirements.” Graduation Planning and Strategies Office. The Graduation Planning and Strategies (GPS) Office provides programming and academic support activities for undergraduate students with high credit hours and other general advising needs to promote long-term planning and support student-driven goals for graduation and beyond. The GPS Office establishes and implements programs, policies, and procedures that affect timely graduation and encourage students to maximize available options for degree completion. In consultation with colleges and departments, Graduation Specialists mediate, design, and manage graduation plans for students while providing intensive advising and degree planning assistance to facilitate timely degree completion. Academic Progress Checks. All undergraduate students complete the online request for a University academic progress check from the Office of the University Registrar, no later than the time the student has earned ninety semester hours of credit or two terms prior to the planned graduation date. Students will receive holds on their account prompting them to request an academic progress check from the Office of the University Registrar and an academic progress check from their college(s). Application for Graduation. Application for a degree must be made during the application period defined in the academic calendar in the term in which the student expects to graduate. Students can apply for graduation online through the Apply for Graduation link under myFSU Links on the myFSU portal (https://my.fsu.edu/). If the student is unable to graduate at the end of the term for which application was made, the application for graduation will carry forward to the subsequent term. Students with 160 or more earned hours may be placed on the graduation list by the University. Students in this category who are added to the graduation list will be notified by the Graduation Planning and Strategies Office and provided detailed information as to their options at that time. The Bachelor of Science Degree. The Bachelor of Science (BS) degree requires all the general criteria listed at the beginning of this section. The Bachelor of Arts Degree. The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree requires all the general criteria listed at the beginning of this section, and Completion of a classical or modern foreign language through the 2000 level (2200 or equivalent course) Nine semester hours in the fields of humanities and history, in addition to the General Education and the world language requirement. Courses may be selected from the following colleges, and departments: College of Fine Arts; College of Music; College of Communication and Information (not including work in Communication Disorders or Information), and the departments of Classics, English, History, Modern Languages and Linguistics, Philosophy, or Religion in the College of Arts and Sciences. Second Baccalaureates and Second Majors. Students should note that there is a difference between a second major and a second baccalaureate degree. Bachelor’s degree with more than one major. To obtain a second major, one must meet all requirements of the college of the primary major, but only the major requirements of the secondary major. For information about the second major see ‘Second Majors and Academic Regulations’ in the “Academic Regulations and Procedures” chapter of this General Bulletin. Dual bachelor’s degrees. In rare cases students may pursue multiple bachelor’s degrees simultaneously. The requirement for earning concurrent, or dual bachelor’s degrees, are: (1) satisfy the requirements for each major/minor as well as individual college requirements for both the first and the second degrees; (2) complete thirty semester hours in residence, in addition to the hours required for the first degree, for a minimum total of 150 earned hours, and 3) complete all University degree requirements. There are no Liberal Studies requirements for the additional degree(s). Both degrees will be awarded in the same term. Consecutive bachelor’s degree beyond the first bachelor’s. Students may receive additional baccalaureate degrees beyond the first degree in cases where a bachelor’s degree has already been awarded. The requirements for an additional bachelor’s degree are: (1) the requirements for each major/minor as well as individual college requirements for the second degree are satisfied; (2) a minimum of thirty semester hours in residence are completed, in addition to the hours required for the first degree; and (3) the State of Florida Civic Literacy Requirement. The additional thirty semester hours must be completed in residence after the completion of the first degree. Hours earned by the student during the completion of the first baccalaureate degree, over and above those extra credit hours required for the first degree, may not be included in the thirty semester hours. There are no Liberal Studies requirements for the second degree except for Civic Literacy. University policy prohibits the awarding of more than one degree from a specific degree program due to the overlap of core requirements of that degree program. Students should seek guidance from their advisors or their college when choosing to pursue a double major or dual degree. This policy applies to both current and readmitted students. Dual degrees and double majors must be declared by the end of the semester in which a student will earn ninety cumulative credit hours toward their degree program at Florida State University. In special circumstances, students may petition their primary academic dean for an exception. Petitions should document the students plan to graduate within four years at Florida State University. Special consideration will be given to students whose total hours include a substantial amount of accelerated credit earned while in high school. Combined Bachelor’s/Master’s Pathways, Direct-Entry Pathways. Combined Bachelor’s/Master’s Pathways. Combined bachelor’s/master’s pathways provide academically talented undergraduate students an opportunity to complete both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree. Upon approval, a combined bachelor’s/master’s pathway allows for up to 12 graduate hours to be shared with an undergraduate degree program and the associated graduate program. Direct-Entry Pathways. Direct-Entry Pathways are a type of combined pathway structured such that the curricula for two academic degrees are interwoven. Students are admitted to the bachelor’s degree program with the understanding that they are expected to complete both degrees. Note: Students interested in pursuing either a combined degree or direct-entry pathway should speak with their academic advisor as soon as possible to determine appropriate options and course selections. Additional admission criteria and procedurals are typically required. Degrees of Distinction. Three degrees of distinction are granted to all native graduating students based on all college-level work attempted (excluding physical education activity courses) and including the term’s work in which baccalaureate degree requirements are completed: Cum Laude for an overall average of 3.500 Magna Cum Laude for an overall average of 3.700 Summa Cum Laude for an overall average of 3.900 Degrees with distinction are granted to transfer students who meet all three of the following requirements: The student must complete at this University at least forty semester hours of letter-graded work, including the final term’s work. The student must have the required minimum grade point average for each distinction level on all work taken at this University. The student must have the required overall grade point average on all work attempted, including any transfer and dual-enrollment credit excluding any physical education activity courses or vocational courses, regardless of how many years have elapsed since the credit was earned. Transfer credit cannot raise a student’s Florida State University grade point average. Therefore, if the transfer grade point average is higher than the Florida State grade point average, the level of distinction will be based on the Florida State grade point average. Graduation “With Honors”. Students who complete and successfully defend an upper-division honors thesis or equivalent honors projects (as defined by individual departments offering honors in the major) will graduate with the designation “With Honors.” Students may graduate with one of the three degrees of distinction described above and “With Honors.” The “University Honors Program and Honor Societies” chapter of this General Bulletin fully describes the Honors in the Major Program. Policy for Awarding Degrees . Florida State University helps students meet their academic goals by monitoring academic progress toward their degree. In addition to the academic dean, the Graduation Planning and Strategies Office may contact students to assist with finalizing their degree plans in order to meet their individual goals and graduate. If an undergraduate student has completed his or her respective degree requirements, the Academic Dean of the student’s program confirms this, and the student is eligible to be awarded the degree, the University reserves the right to award the degree. Once the degree is awarded, the student must be readmitted to Florida State University in order to enroll in any courses. Students pursuing double majors or dual degrees must formally notify their academic dean of their intent. Undergraduate students pursuing dual degrees in different disciplines must obtain formal approval of their academic dean, following established University procedures for such approvals. Should the University invoke its prerogative to award a degree once a student has completed all stated degree requirements, the student may appeal this decision. If the student can demonstrate that continued enrollment is necessary to achieve his or her academic goals, the appeal may be granted. Reasons such as, but not limited to, desire to continue financial aid, participate in student activities, and access student services do not constitute legitimate reasons for appeal. Any undergraduate student who wishes to appeal for continued enrollment, thereby postponing graduation, must submit a written request to the student’s academic dean no later than ten class days after being notified that the University is invoking its right to award the degree. This appeal will be reviewed by a committee composed of the student’s primary academic dean, the Dean of Undergraduate Studies, and the University Registrar. The committee must find evidence to support the student’s claim of a legitimate academic need in order to grant permission to continue taking courses. Once a degree has been awarded, all coursework leading to that degree is considered final and not subject to change. “Incomplete” grade changes or any other grade changes should be submitted prior to the posting of the degree. Grade changes or withdrawals for coursework that applies to the awarded degree may be considered only in cases of documented University error or in cases where the courses in question are documented as applying to a degree that is still in progress. Undergraduate Level Certificate Programs. The University offers a variety of certificate programs, which consist of an organized curriculum of courses that lead to specific educational or occupational goals. A list of the certificate programs offered by the university is available in the Academic Degree and Certificate Programs chapter of the General Bulletin. These programs are generally considered professional in nature and the completion of these programs are noted on the student’s official university transcript, if the following conditions are met: The student must apply and be admitted into the certificate program in order to be officially recognized as pursuing the program by the university.Some certificate programs may be restricted by degree level or offered only to degree-seeking students, while others are open to all enrolled students.The admissions criteria may include previous educational background, grade point average, or other qualifications.For formal admission requirements and procedures, students should contact the department offering the certificate program. The student must apply to the certificate program prior to completing the second course in the program.Completing the certification program coursework without proper admission to the program could jeopardize future enrollment opportunities in certificate program courses or the recognition of the completion of the certificate program by the university.Once the student has been admitted to the certificate program, the department will notify the Registrar’s Office, so it is reflected on the student’s official academic record.Once the student has completed the last course required for the certificate program, the department will notify the Registrar’s Office and the certificate will be posted to the student’s official transcript. Should a degree-seeking student complete a degree program prior to completing the requirements for the certificate, the student would be required to be readmitted as a degree seeking or non-degree seeking student to complete the certificate program.

According to Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, two out of three jobs demand at least some education or training beyond high school. And in 2018, the National Center for Education Statistics reported that the median earnings of those with a bachelor’s degree were 57% higher than the earnings of those with a high school degree. With a bachelor’s degree, you’re far less likely to be unemployed than people with only a high school diploma. And you’re more likely to have a better quality of life. College Board reports that having a college degree is associated with a healthier and more socially active lifestyle. Those with a bachelor’s degree are more likely to exercise, volunteer, and vote. So it’s no surprise that more people than ever are returning to complete their degrees. Bryan Klickstein ’13 earned his BA in Liberal Studies with a Specialization in Business Management from Lesley, which he started at age 35. “I'd had some success professionally, but I didn’t know if those skills would translate to college,” he says. “I realized that going to school as an adult is gaining confidence that all of the personal and professional skills you bring, and your years of experience, will translate into academic success.” "At Lesley, I discovered I was a great independent learner. Now, I help business owners and professional women discover their strengths.” Clara Angelina Diaz ’14 Five Tips for Completing Your Bachelor’s Degree. You recognize the importance to your future of getting a bachelor’s degree, and now you’re ready to take the next steps. Whether you’ve been out of school for two years or 20, you’re wondering how to make a degree-completion program work. We’ve talked with students who’ve successfully completed their bachelor’s degree at Lesley, and they came back with these 5 tips for ensuring that you’ll achieve your dream of finishing your bachelor’s degree. 1. Be clear about why you’re getting a degree. . Whether you’re taking your existing career to the next level or going in a new direction, you want to be able to answer the question: “Will this degree get me where I want to go?” 2. Maximize your credits. . Look for a school that will help you identify credits for work experience, professional training, or college courses you’ve already completed. (For example, you could receive up to 90 credits toward your bachelor’s degree from Lesley in our campus-based and online programs.) The more credits you identify, the fewer credits you’ll need to earn, which helps reduce costs. 3. Play detective. Investigate financial aid availability at colleges you are interested in; look into student and private loans, and scholarships. Bachelor’s degree completion programs are often less expensive overall than traditional on-campus undergraduate programs. 4. Pace yourself. . Take small steps to get back into practice as a student; take one or two classes at the beginning to build your confidence. 5. Build a support network. . There’s no stigma in asking for help from professors, staff, or your advisor, or in taking advantage of tutoring and mentoring that the college provides. And getting support outside of school from family members or friends can help you stay on track by holding you accountable. Learn more about Lesley's bachelor's degree programs. Choose from 25+ liberal arts majors, 9 art & design majors, and 45+ minors across a range of subjects. You can also customize your program of study based on your interests.

Sponsored Schools Posted Jun 24th, 2014 , Updated Jun 29th, 2018 by College Atlas What Is a Bachelor of Science, BS or BSc Degree? A Bachelor of Science Degree, most often abbreviated as a BS or BSc Degree, is an undergraduate science-focused degree that takes 3-5 years to complete. This timeline varies based on the school’s BS or BSC degree requirements, degree area of focus, student needs, and any previously earned transfer credits. In the United States and Canada, the Bachelor of Science is given for the completion of undergraduate studies in mathematics, engineering, computer science, physical sciences, economics, and related fields. The BS or BSc degree designation is less common within the areas of business, nursing, medicine, law, hospitality, and architecture.

Prior to this, nearly all bachelor’s degrees were given the Bachelor of Art (BA) designation, for all subjects. The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), a public research university specializing in social sciences, applies the BSc designation to degrees earned in almost all subject areas, even those that would traditionally merit the BA designation stateside. In contrast, Oxbridge and Russell Group universities almost always award a BA, even in subject areas that would be considered sciences in the United States. BS Degree Requirements Around the World. Today in the United States there is close to a national consensus as to which subjects are a Bachelor of Science and which are a Bachelor of Arts. Outside the U.S., however, there are many differences. Outside of the U.S., BS and BSc degrees vary in their requirements, naming conventions, and duration. This changes based on where the degree is earned. Below we provide an in-depth look at the differences in BS and BSc degree programs and designations around the world. Global Bachelor of Science Requirements. The United Kingdom and the Republic Of Ireland. In Britain and Ireland, as in the U.S. and Canada, a Bachelors of Science is given upon the completion of an undergraduate program in a field of science. The time period for finishing the degree may vary by country, subject field, and school. In both the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, there are two types of Bachelor of Science degrees: BSc and BS or BSc (Hons) and BS (Hons). The BSc or BS is given for completion of an “ordinary” undergraduate program while the BSc (Hons) or BS (Hons) is given for honour’s-level program. Earning an honour’s level degree means the students have shown superior academic performance (as opposed to accepting a “pass” grade). In some cases, it also means they finished an extra year of honour’s studies. England In England, Northern Ireland, and Wales, an honour’s degree can be done in three years. Though today there are a few accelerated honour’s programs that can be finished in just two years. Scotland In Scotland, students graduate from high school a year before students in most other countries. Scottish college students need to complete a foundation year of college studies. This is known as the “First Year”. The First Year brings the completion period for a Bachelor Science degree in Scotland to four years. The Republic of Ireland Ireland offers two Bachelor of Science degrees, the BSc Ordinary which can be completed in three years and the BSc Honours which is given after four years of study. European Union and Affiliated Countries. The Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Master of Arts (MA) system was received into Europe in 2002. Before then, higher education schools in European countries offered a single post-secondary education program that combined modern Bachelor’s and Master’s curriculum. Students who completed the program were given the doctorandus degree. Today, most European colleges, universities, and academies offer the full equivalent of a BSc or MSc, but these differ from country to country. Germany In Germany there are two types of higher education schools: Universitten and Fachhochschulen. The University offers more general studies and is focused on science and theory. The Fachhochschulen, or University of Applied Science offers more specialized training and career-focused classes. These two degrees are equal to each other. Over the last decade, like most other European countries, German countries have transitioned to the Bachelor’s/Master’s system. They now offer both the BSc and MSc degrees. Earning a BSc in Germany takes six to seven academic semesters or 3 to 3.5 years. During this time, students are required to earn between 180 and 210 ECTS credits. ECTS stands for European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System. It is a standard system for comparing the academic performance of higher education students throughout Europe. Czech Republic While a bit behind the curve, the Czech Republic is now adopting the Bachelor of Science (BSc) and Master of Science (MSc) system. Universities and higher education schools in the Czech Republic now offer BSc (Bc) and MSc (Mgr/Ing) degrees equal to those offered by their European counterparts.

Australia The Bachelor of Science (abbreviated BSc) in Australia can be finished in three years. Students who want to earn a BSc (hons.) can do a fourth year of Honours studies. To gain acceptance into an Australian PhD program, students must either earn a BSc (hons.) or a traditional BSc and MSc. New Zealand The process for earning a BSc in New Zealand is similar to that in Australia. However, to earn an Honours degree in NZ there are often more postgraduate demands based on the field of study and school. Often students who have shown strong academic performance through their undergraduate studies will be invited to extend their education an additional year. This additional year will focus on research and will qualify them to enter a PhD program. South Africa As is the case in Australia and New Zealand, the Bachelor of Science (BSc) in South Africa can be finished in just three years of full-time study. The BSc Honours (a postgraduate degree) requires four years of full-time study. To be given the BSc (hons.), students must keep a high GPA and show superior academic performance. The BSc (hons.) degree is required to enter MSc or PhD level studies. South America. In Argentina, and a few other countries in South America, universities offer a single undergraduate program. It is given as a professional licensure within a specific discipline or field of study instead of as a degree. These programs take five to six years to complete and include a 1-2 year professional training period. They are considered equal to a combined BS/MS degree. Unlike bachelor’s programs offered in other countries that may emphasize liberal arts education, bachelor’s programs in Argentina almost always focus on a specific field or discipline. Once students complete about 80% of their total coursework they can start their mandatory professional training period. This is similar to a residency or apprenticeship program in the United States. Once that is finished, students are given a degree that designates them to be “Licensed in” their subject of study. Following the completion of their professional licensure program, students may return to complete a more traditional master’s degree. This will require an additional 2 to 3 years of coursework and training. Some professionals, like engineers or medical doctors, will have even more education requirements to complete. Global View of Average Bachelor of Science Completion Lengths. One of the biggest differences in Bachelor of Science (BS) degree programs throughout the world is the time for completion. Below are the countries that have schools offering BS or BSc degrees, along with their typical completion period. We have also noted variations in the typical time required to complete a BS.

                            [body] => Academic Degrees Academic degrees are capitalized only when the full name of the degree is used, such as Bachelor of Arts or Master of Social Work. General references, such as bachelor's, master's or doctoral degree, are not capitalized. Correct He earned a Bachelor of Arts in 2008.He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication in 2008.He earned a Bachelor of Arts in communication in 2008. He earned a bachelor’s degree in 2008. She holds a doctoral degree (or doctorate) from Stanford University. Abbreviations, such as B.A., M.S. and Ph.D., should be used in text only when there is a need to identify many people by academic degree and use of the full names would be cumbersome. In most writing, use of the general terms bachelor’s or bachelor’s degree, master’s or master’s degree and doctorate or doctoral degree are sufficient to establish credentials and preferred to use of the full name of the degree (or the initials). Use an apostrophe (possessive) with bachelor’s degree and master’s degree, but not in Bachelor of Arts or Master of Science. Do not use an apostrophe (possessive) with associate degree or doctoral degree. Never use both a courtesy title and degree. Preferred: Dr. Dana Brooks will...Acceptable: Dana Brooks, Ph.D., will...Do not use: Dr. Dana Brooks, Ph.D., will... Identifying alumni by class year versus degrees earned. To identify someone as an alumnus or alumna of WMU, use the person's preferred class year. Immediately following the name, enter one space, an apostrophe and the two-numeral preferred class year. Both graduate and non-graduate alumni (attended but did not earn a degree) have a preferred class year, and each alumnus and alumna has only one preferred class year, regardless of how many degrees are held. ExampleMary W. Smith ’79 was elected president of the chapter. To identify degrees earned at WMU, place a comma immediately after the name, and follow it with a space, the degree, an apostrophe, the two-numeral year the degree was awarded, and a comma (or period at the end of a sentence). Examples Mary W. Smith, B.A.’79, was elected president. Thomas C. Clark, B.A.’65, M.A.’67, Ph.D.’79, attended the reunion. If your intention is to show degrees earned at WMU, then list both the degrees and the years in which they were earned. If your intention is simply to indicate that the person is an alumnus or alumna, use only the preferred class year. Correct Thomas C. Clark ’65 attended the reunion. Thomas C. Clark, B.A.’65, M.A.’67, Ph.D.’79, attended the reunion.Incorrect Thomas C. Clark ’65 ’67 ’79 attended the reunion. Degrees earned at other institutions. Except to show multiple degrees earned at Western Michigan University, do not list more than one degree following a person's name. The following examples are a first reference to a speaker who earned her degrees at another university. Incorrect: Rebecca McKenzie, B.A., M.A., Ph.D., will...Acceptable: Rebecca McKenzie, Ph.D., will...Preferred: Dr. Rebecca McKenzie will... Do not mix degrees earned at WMU with degrees earned at other institutions. If Mary Smith earned a B.A. in 1995 from WMU and a Ph.D. in 2008 from the University of Illinois, list her as "Mary Smith, B.A.’95," or as "Mary Smith, Ph.D." Never include the two-numeral class year construction with degrees earned from other institutions.

As you begin your study at the University of Iowa, be sure to courses that interest you and spark your curiosity; the classroom is a good way to find friends who enjoy what you do and instructors who can help mentor those interests. GE CLAS Core requirements. All CLAS students must complete the GE CLAS Core requirements as stated on the student's degree audit. The program consists of a common core in communication and literacy; foundational courses in the natural and social sciences and quantitative thinking; and a wide range of courses in culture, society and the arts. To fulfill the General Education requirements, students may select from a wide variety of courses within numerous disciplines. The General Education sometimes are updated for entering students; you may view the requirements by the year you entered UI GE CLAS Core policies. Students who wish to earn a BA, BS, BFA, or BM degree from CLAS must complete the requirements of the CLAS General Education CLAS Core. If a student is planning to apply to undergraduate programs within the Tippie College of Business, College of Education, College of Engineering, Carver College of Medicine, College of Nursing, or College of Pharmacy, the student should check those colleges’ general education requirements, as they may be different from those required by CLAS. Students should contact their advisors and/or the Academic Advising Center with questions. Transfer credit. Transfer credit may be used to fulfill some areas of the General Education Program. Transfer credit is evaluated by Admissions, and courses accepted for completion of the General Education Program are shown on the degree audit. For more information about transfer policies, contact Admissions. Students with degrees from two-year institutions. Students who have received an Associate of Arts (AA) from a two-year institution participating in an articulation agreement with the University of Iowa are considered to have satisfied all requirements of the General Education Program, except World Languages and Diversity and Inclusion, if the program of study for which the degree was awarded includes the following: A minimum of 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) of credit acceptable toward graduation (mathematics courses comparable to MATH:0100 Basic Algebra I, MATH:#002 Basic Algebra II, and MATH:0300 Basic Geometry are not accepted toward graduation); and Completion of an agreed upon group of courses; and A grade point average of at least 2.00. Representatives from the cooperating institutions and the Regents universities meet periodically to review the provisions of the articulation agreements. If a student completes an associate degree other than an AA or if the AA is from a college that does not have an articulation agreement with the University, credits will be evaluated course-by-course by Admissions to determine how they will transfer. For more information about transfer policies and the GE CLAS Core requirements, contact Admissions. Proficiency exams. The University accepts credit by examination for some areas of the GE CLAS Core, including AP (Advanced Placement), Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), CLEP (College-Level Examination Program), and IB (International Baccalaureate) credit. See AP, CIE, CLEP and IB exam equivalencies Please see GE CLAS Core: World Languages for information on World Languages proficiency exams. See also Credit by examination. P/N, S/F, or S/U grading options. Students cannot choose the Pass/Non-pass (P/N) option for courses they are taking to satisfy CLAS Core requirements. (A student can choose the P/N grading option for a GEP course is if he/she is taking it as an elective and the credit will not be applied to the Core requirements.) Courses using S/F or S/U grading are very rarely approved for GE status in the CLAS Core. Read more about the P/N, S/F, and S/U grading options. Satisfying multiple requirements. Students may take a General Education-approved course and may use that course to satisfy both a CLAS Core requirement and a requirement of their major, minor, or certificate program. However, students may not use a single course to satisfy more than one Core area requirement. If students take a course that is approved in more than one  requirement area, they may choose which Core requirement the course will satisfy (contact Graduation Services). Limit on courses from a single department. With the exception of the World Languages requirement, students may not use more than three courses from any one department to complete the General Education requirements. Repeating General Education courses. Courses that may be repeated for credit are at times approved for GE status in General Education Program. Students may repeat these GEP courses for credit  but the credit may be applied to only one GE requirement. Students may not use credit earned from a repeatable course to fulfill more than one GE requirement. Honors students. Those admitted as honors students or who have become members of the University Honors Program may enroll in special honors sections of General Education courses. The Honors Program also offers some honors seminars that satisfy General Education requirements. Students with disabilities. Students with documented learning or physical disabilities may need accommodations in order to complete the General Education Program. Accommodations are arranged by Student Disability Services in consultation with instructors, departments, and CLAS Academic Programs and Student Development. In order to receive accommodations, students with disabilities should consult Student Disability Services as soon as they receive acceptance of admission. Satisfying the UI and CLAS residence requirements. To earn a BA, BFA, BM, or BS degree from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, students must satisfy both the University of Iowa residence requirement and the CLAS residence requirement. The University of Iowa residence requirement. Credit hours earned in all courses offered by The University of Iowa are considered UI residence hours, regardless of whether the courses are offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, by another college within the University of Iowa, or through Distance and Online Education. Credit hours earned from colleges and universities outside of the University of Iowa are considered non-residence credit. Credit by examination may be residence or non-residence credit. If you earn credit by examination while you are enrolled in a college at the University of Iowa, the credit is considered UI residence credit. If, on the other hand, you earn credit by examination while you are enrolled in a college or university other than the University of Iowa and this credit appears on your transfer transcript, the credit is considered non-residence credit. To earn a bachelor’s degree from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, you must complete one of the following UI residence options: Earn your final 30 s.h. in residence credit, or Earn 45 of your final 60 s.h. in residence credit, or Earn an overall total of 90 s.h. in residence credit The CLAS residence requirement. All students in any major offered by CLAS must complete the 30 semester hour CLAS residence requirement in order to earn a CLAS degree. Students must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours of credit from courses administered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or otherwise designated as carrying residence credit. Courses offered by the Departments of Biochemistry, Microbiology, Economics, and Science Studies (formerly Science Education) are offered by the Colleges of Medicine, Business, and Education. Courses offered by these departments do not generally count for the CLAS residence requirement. However, if you earn a major from one of these departments, the credit hours of the courses applied to the major will be counted toward the CLAS residence requirement. Only the undergraduate majors from the departments listed above qualify for this exception. All honors courses and courses with CLAS General Education status are counted toward fulfilling the CLAS residence requirement. Graduation. To be considered for graduation, you must file a degree application with the Office of the Registrar before the published deadline. The university cannot award a degree without first receiving this application. Students may file the degree application on MyUI (select “Student Records”) for the current or the next session's graduation. Questions about degree applications should be directed to Graduation Services, 2700 UCC, email: [email protected] To have a certificate or minor listed on your permanent record, you must inform Graduation Services when you file for graduation so that the Registrar can verify that you have completed the requirements for the requested certificate or minor. Information about graduation ceremonies (commencement) may be found on the Commencement website. Commencement ceremonies are held in May and December. Please note, summer degrees are awarded but no summer graduation ceremonies are held. Please note: After a student has graduated and the degree is noted on their official transcript, their academic record prior to graduation is frozen and no changes are permitted, including but not limited to retroactive record adjustments (adds, drops or withdrawals), use of second-grade-only options, or waiving Ws.

In either case, a bachelor’s degree is the key that unlocks the door to a world of career options and development. An Introduction to the Bachelor Degree. A bachelor’s degree is a post-secondary undergraduate degree. In this program, students are usually expected to complete 120 semester credits. This is roughly 40 college courses and typically takes about four years to complete. This degree is considered the most traditional college degree. It includes general education or liberal arts courses in areas such as social sciences, natural sciences, computer science, history, math, and English. It also includes required credit hours in your major area of study. In most cases, only 30 to 36 credits are in your major study area. This degree serves as a prerequisite for entry into most professional careers and is critical for anyone looking for career advancement. In jobs like teaching, engineering, and more, you cannot enter the field without at least a bachelor’s degree. You also typically cannot enter a graduate program, such as a master’s degree or doctoral degree program, without at least a bachelor’s degree. How Important Is a Bachelor Degree? In today’s career field, having a bachelor’s degree is nearly a necessity to land a solid job with any possibility for advancement. Here are also some other benefits that a bachelor’s degree offers. Improved Employment Opportunities. In many career paths, a bachelor’s degree is a minimum requirement. This degree shows potential employers that you are committed to your field. It also shows a base level of relevant knowledge. This degree is a valuable credential that can help you qualify for a wide range of positions. A bachelor’s degree can lead to entry-level positions in many fields including business management, health sciences, healthcare management, and information systems. Graduate School Possibility.

The possibilities for bachelor’s degrees and their particular fields of study are nearly endless, but most fall under three common degree types. These are: Bachelor of Arts (B.A.). A B.A. is typically considered more general than some other degree options. It generally requires that a student has fewer concentration courses and more general study courses. These degrees are designed for those with an interest in the liberal arts who desire the opportunity to customize their educational path to meet their career goals. The most common majors awarded with a B.A. upon graduation include English, art, and communications. Bachelor of Science (B.S.). A B.S. is less exploratory and more content-specific. This degree is more focused on the field of your major and may even be considered more career-focused. For example, degrees in the medical field are often Bachelor of Science degrees. Some of the most common majors within the Bachelor of Science degree options include business, economics, and biology. Bachelor’s in Fine Arts (BFA).

Most bachelor’s degree programs need roughly 30 to 36 credits within your major. This means that more than half of the coursework is focused on general education courses. In addition, some programs require students to complete an internship or practicum to provide hands-on experience in their field. What’s the Difference Between a Bachelor’s Degree and an Associate’s Degree? Many students entering higher education weigh the possibility of pursuing a bachelor’s degree or an associate’s degree. It’s important to understand the key differences between the two to choose the best fit for you. At a very basic level, a bachelor’s degree is a four-year degree while an associate degree is typically a two-year option. Obviously, you will receive more experience and learn more content during a four-year degree program. The end goals of these degrees are generally different as well. A bachelor’s degree program is designed to provide a student with a well-balanced education and the skills necessary to pursue a specific career field. Bachelor’s degrees prepare students for professional jobs such as those in middle management. They require both general and specific coursework. An associate’s degree more often prepares graduates for entry-level careers with the necessary skills and knowledge required for their selected field. In some cases, these degrees can later transfer into a four-year degree or provide the basis of general education requirements for a more advanced degree. Common career goals accessible through an associate’s degree include entry-level positions in information technology, criminal justice, and human resources. Who Should Seek a Bachelor Degree? Deciding whether a bachelor’s degree is right for you is not always easy. There are a few considerations that can simplify the decision for you. A bachelor’s degree obviously presents more opportunities for individuals willing and able to put the added time and effort into a four-year degree.
