RECAP

We're on the final lap. You have earned 90 semester hours credit to this point. Another 30 are required to meet degree requirements. Let's get going. Because of differences in distribution requirements for BA versus  BS degree, we will examine them individually. This guide covers the requirements for the BS degree.

 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE

Two depth areas are required for the BS Liberal Arts degree, which you have already fulfilled and then some. You also require a total of 30 semester hours at the upper level and currently have 27. 21 of the 30 upper division credits must be in the arts and sciences. You currently have 18 upper division credits in the arts and sciences, the rest being applied/professional, so one more course needed there. Additionally, 60 of the 120 total credits required for the bachelor degree must be in the arts and sciences. You've already met that requirement too!


 
 

RECAP - Requirements for the BS degree

  Total credit required 120 - we have 90 and need another 30

  UD credit required 30 - we have 27 - require 3 (see next)

  Arts and Science UD required 21 - we have 18 - require 3

  Arts and science 60 credits - we have 66* - OK

Most of these exams are "fillers". You can substitute any one with another subject more to you liking, but at least one exam must be in the upper division in the Arts or Sciences. Throughout this series we've gone for the easiest set of examinations available rather than the least expensive.  I've tried to steer clear of mathematics and the sciences as much as possible because most people prefer it that way. If you feel more comfortable with math or physics, chemistry, or maybe a foreign language, now is the time to make those substitutions. Others may want to consider accounting, economics, and production management.


 

SUMMARY

Well, that's it. Congratulations, you've just  earned an accredited Liberal Arts  Bachelor of Science degree. Not too shabby. Now What?

 

Well, when ready, you could take a look at this selection of affordable and accelerated online master degrees.

 

Next guide we'll look at a practical example of the use of GRE exams to earn a bachelor of Science degree with a sample concentration in Psychology.
