Undergraduate Degree Completion Program
There are many accomplished individuals who, for one reason or another, never finished their bachelor’s degree. For some, earning that credential could make a significant difference in their career advancement. For others it is an important milestone of personal growth.
Boston University’s Undergraduate Degree Completion Program (UDCP) is provided in a convenient format to allow students to complete a high-quality bachelor’s degree online alongside other accomplished, motivated, mature students. The program’s online format allows adult students to accomplish their goals without disrupting their personal and professional commitments.
Students graduate from the online bachelor’s degree completion program with a Bachelor of Liberal Studies in Interdisciplinary Studies. The program has proven its value in both classical and contemporary cultures. Once the basis of all learning through a collection of disciplines including both arts and science, liberal studies now emphasizes the interconnection of all knowledge along with personal and professional skills such as critical thinking, rhetorical acumen, active citizenship, and leadership. The major in liberal studies is especially important for those who value learning for learning’s sake and do not confine their interests and passions to any particular discipline or area. Whether you want a set of skills for application in the workplace or an open inquiry into diverse subject matter, the liberal studies program is a time-tested and relevant way to expand your knowledge base. In as little as 30 months, you can earn a degree that will give you the knowledge, skills, and confidence you seek.
Throughout the UDCP curriculum, students will:
- Engage in interdisciplinary learning in the classical and contemporary liberal arts with a detailed study of particular themes and disciplines
- Develop critical thinking skills through extensive analysis and synthesis
- Acquire rhetorical acumen through writing and discussion
- Foster active citizenship by applying the liberal arts to the professional and public spheres
- Pursue learning for learning’s sake
To apply for the UDCP, you should have completed 52-64 undergraduate credits from an accredited institution.^ Top of Page
