College Degree Levels-Bachelor's Degree

What is a Bachelor's Degree?

A bachelor's degree is a four-year degree. It typically takes four years of full-time study to earn a bachelor's degree. In these four years, you will complete 120 semester credits or roughly 40 college courses. A bachelor's degree consists typically of only two years within the main area of study. The first two years are university requirements, consisting of general study courses. Bachelor's degrees are seen as a better rounded education compared with the degree requirements of certificates and associates degrees. A bachelor's degree sets a student up for many high paying jobs and also fulfills the requirements needed if a graduate degree is desired later on.
