What makes up a BA degree?

What makes up a BA degree?

Everyone’s degree completion plan is unique.

A Bachelor of Arts degree in leadership consists of 122 semester hours (sh).  The degree completion program, in which this major is offered, is based on a student entering with an AA (Associate of Arts) degree or equivalent (i.e. diploma) of 60 sh.  

Students without an AA or equivalent degree need not worry and can still complete their BA degree with us. Our Advisors work with you to develop a personalized Learning Plan. Check out our Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) to find out how to translate informal and non-traditional learning into recognized university credit. 
A maximum of 75 sh may be transferred into TWU, leaving a minimum of 47 sh required to complete a degree.  Depending upon the selection of transfer credit, students may be able to complete their degree in as little as 18 months.  Adults with previous TWU credit may only need a minimum of 42 sh, depending on their course distribution.
