Degrees of Study

Berea College offers majors in thirty-two (32) fields of study, some offering multiple curricula that, upon successful completion, lead to Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and/or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees. Most degree programs require a minimum of 32 earned course credits; the Nursing Program typically requires a minimum of 34 earned course credits. Because of the sequential nature of some degree programs, students interested in a particular major should read carefully the requirements and recommendations outlined in the “Academic Programs and Courses” section of this Catalog & Student Handbook for their specific degree program. A Curriculum Guide for each major is made available to students and advisors via a link from this online publication, but the descriptions in the “Academic Programs and Courses” section of the online Catalog & Student Handbook remain the official source for information concerning the major. 

Descriptions of all current majors can be found here.
