Departments of Study

Berea College offers majors in thirty-three (33) fields of study, some offering multiple curricula that, upon successful completion, lead to Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and/or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees. Most degree programs require a minimum of 32 earned course credits; the Nursing Department typically requires a minimum of 34 earned course credits. Because of the sequential nature of some degree programs, students interested in a particular major should read carefully the requirements and recommendations outlined in the this publication. A Curriculum Guide for each major is made available to students and advisors through the Office of Registrar, but the descriptions in this publication remain the official source for information concerning degree requirements. Descriptions of all current majors and minors can be found here.
