Reflection Lake and geese Four-year degree programs in the College of  Liberal Arts lead to either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree.

The Bachelor of Arts degree at USI requires a minimum of 12 hours of instruction in non-English world languages and cultures or the demonstration of competence at the intermediate level through an appropriate language examination.

The Bachelor of Arts, with its emphasis upon the study of a non-English language and a broad knowledge base, is especially valuable for students who hope to go on to graduate studies. Those considering graduate school should consult with their advisors about the Bachelor of Arts option.
