University Studies (BA)
The Bachelor of Arts in University Studies is a flexible liberal arts degree that allows students to engage with our Foundational Core courses and other topics of interest. The Bachelor of Arts in University Studies offers three concentrations: Business Administration, Education, and Psychology. Any approved concentration from another degree program or any minor will also allow a student to complete the University Studies degree without a concentration.
The approved University Studies concentrations (i.e., Business Administration, Education and Psychology) include core courses that mirror OCU’s bachelor’s degrees in those areas but provide space for additional exploration in liberal arts and science courses.
The Bachelor of Arts in University Studies consists of the Foundational Core for bachelor’s programs of forty-one (41) semester hours and at least thirty (30) semester hours at the 300 and 400 level. The total number of credits must reach at least 120 semester hours.
