Bachelor degree programs are designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and abilities for entry into the workforce, career transition, or graduate study. Bachelor degree programs require a minimum of 120 semester hours and a GPA of 2.0 for graduation. In most cases, these are comprised of general education, major, and elective requirements. In many programs, you have the opportunity to select specific concentrations within the degree program or opt for a general program. You may also elect to “minor” in a second academic discipline.
