Course Overview

A bachelor’s degree can increase your earning potential, boost your job opportunities, and set you on the path toward a successful career. Also referred to as an “undergraduate degree,” your major (area of study) will be the basis for your education and eventual career. Bachelor's degrees are often required before pursuing master’s or doctoral degrees and are the first significant step in your higher education. 

You get a bachelor’s degree at four-year universities or through an online undergraduate program by a university. The benefit of these programs is that four-year universities not only give you the education you’ll need to understand your field, but also out-of-class internship, research, or leadership opportunities that can further enhance your resume. 

Bachelor’s degrees will take about four years to complete, or 120-semester credits (180 if you’re on a quarter system). There are several types of Bachelor’s degrees, each encapsulating a different field of study. These include Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Science (BS), and Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA).
