Complete Your Bachelor's Degree

This program is designed for highly motivated students who have already completed the first two years of college, including all general education requirements. Two years of prior undergraduate study, approximately 60 semester or 90 quarter credits of transferable coursework from an accredited college or university, must be completed prior to enrollment.

Students commonly come to complete a bachelor’s degree after a career transition, earning an associate’s degree, transferring after two years of university, or serving in the military. Students take introductory courses in international policy, management, and economics in order to earn a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies.
