This degree is also built into the Bachelor’s degree program as core curriculum and takes the student almost half-way through it. Any student who has completed the Associate’s degree is naturally eligible to transfer into the Bachelor’s degree program. Conversely, a student who fails to complete a Bachelor’s degree program can, in most cases, revert to the Associate degree. Click here for further information.

* This course is required for any first semester student.
** Each student will sit for language placement tests and have a passing grade in one or more preferred language(s). The student is approved to adopt a particular language, in which he/she has had a passing grade, as writing/research language. The other language(s) in which the student did not have a passing grade will be offered, free of charge, as (a) required course(s) in the student’s first and second semesters. Students are to take these courses as many times as needed until a passing grade is reached. Each of these language classes has the workload value of a 1 credit-hours course, yet these hours do not accumulate towards the degree.
One credit hour requires 1.1 hours (1h06’) class time and 2.2 additional hours (2h12’) of personal work per week, for one semester. Thus, a 3-credit hours course requires 3.3 hours of class time and 6.6 (6h36’) additional hours of personal work per week, for one semester.
A student enrolled in courses totaling 12 credit hours should expect a 40-hours workload per week, for one semester.
