Both the bachelor of arts (BA) and bachelor of science (BS) degrees are primary university degrees earned in the American system of education. They provide the educational foundation necessary to meet the demands of contemporary society and introduce a range of ideas, including vocational and/or professional options.
The undergraduate degree (BA or BS) requires the successful completion of 128 credit hours of academic work (approx. 43 courses). Based on tuition hours and other considerations courses are assigned a number of credits. Most courses are valued at 3 credits. A sequential degree is possible for students who have already completed a bachelor's degree in one subject and wish to study for a bachelor's degree in another subject. This requires the completion of only the requirements in the major (see the individual course requirements for further details).
