Bachelor's degrees are offered in various disciplines, such as arts, sciences, social sciences, business, engineering, and more. They provide students with a comprehensive and foundational education in their chosen field, combining general education courses with specialized coursework.
Earning a bachelor's degree involves completing a prescribed set of courses, fulfilling credit requirements, and often conducting research or a capstone project. Some programs may also require students to undertake internships or practical experiences related to their field of study.
