Undergraduate Degree Completion Program (online)

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.

For students who wish to complete their bachelor’s degree—and who have previously earned 52–64 transferable academic credits—the Undergraduate Degree Completion Program (UDCP) offers a unique, fully online curriculum covering the social sciences, humanities, and natural sciences. Completion of the academic coursework that comprises the UDCP leads to a Boston University Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.

Students who complete the bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies will be able to demonstrate:

  • A broad understanding of the liberal arts (that may be considered complete in itself or as suitable preparation for graduate studies), along with college-level rhetorical acumen through exposure to the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, including mathematics and computer science.
  • Critical thinking skills via analysis and material studied in the classical and contemporary liberal arts using the interdisciplinary study method of particular themes and disciplines.
  • Preparedness for active citizenship by means of a strong foundation in the liberal arts and an understanding of the connectedness of knowledge and learning as an interdisciplinary phenomenon.
