Bachelor’s Degree

The University of San Diego is committed to a program designed to acquaint every student with the intellectual, cultural, and moral life of our civilization, while providing at the same time the opportunity to add to this knowledge special career-centered competencies. Normally, the student is in residence through eight semesters, during which he or she is enrolled in approximately 44 courses, carrying minimum credit of 124 units.

USD students who wish to earn a second bachelor’s degree (as opposed to one degree with two majors) are required to complete a minimum of 30 units beyond the first USD degree (thus, at least 154 units are needed), to be seeking a different degree (for example, a BBA for a student who has already earned a BA degree).

Transfer students who already have a bachelor’s degree and wish to earn a USD baccalaureate degree in another major must meet all of USD’s core curriculum requirements, meet USD’s residency requirement of a minimum of 30 units, and meet all requirements (including prerequisites) for the degree and major sought.

Each student is responsible for his or her own academic program, and for satisfying requirements listed in this course catalog.
