Undergraduate degrees available at Boise State fall into one of two categories: associate degrees and baccalaureate degrees (also known as bachelor degrees). Both degrees are academic titles granted to students who have completed a specific course of study; a particular course of study constitutes a major (for example, accountancy, biology, or English). For instance, if you major in biology, you will receive a bachelor of science degree. If you major in English, you will receive a bachelor of arts degree.
Typically, obtaining a baccalaureate degree requires four years or more of full-time study, while obtaining an associate degree usually requires two or more years of full-time study.
