The bachelor's degree is the standard for many professional careers. At Granite State College, our nationally and regionally accredited bachelor's degree programs are designed specifically for working adults.
A bachelor's degree usually takes about four years of full-time study to earn and consists of about 40 college courses. Bachelor's degrees incorporate general education or liberal arts courses in areas such as English, critical inquiry, psychology, arts and humanities, communication, history, and mathematics, in addition to courses in your major area of study.
You should pursue your bachelor's degree if you know that one is required for your career, if you've already earned more than 60 semester college credits, or if you hold an associate degree. You should also pursue a bachelor's degree if you plan to pursue a graduate or professional degree in the future.
Your major can be in an already established area such as Business Management or Psychology, or it can be an approved Individualized Studies major designed for your specific educational or professional goals.
