Bachelor Degree Completion Programs

Saturday-Hybrid BA Degree Completion Program at SSU


Designed for the Working Adult (featuring monthly Saturday meetings and weekly online seminars)

This Liberal Studies Degree Completion Program offers an alternative route to a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies for working adults who have completed lower-division coursework and whose schedules do not permit them to attend regular campus classes. Instruction is organized around one full Saturday seminar per month on campus, combined with weekly online seminars and ongoing reading and writing assignments.

The Saturday-Hybrid Program provides a pathway to a Liberal Studies B.A. through student-led learning. This program is designed around the Hutchins Pedagogy which stresses dialogue in seminars and online discussions, and project-based activities within a cohort of students who learn together in four, semester-long interdisciplinary courses over two years.
