Undergraduate Degree Programs

Designed for Busy Adults

Our programs are designed to fit the lifestyles of busy adults just like you. For professionals with little to no previous college credit, Bethel’s Associate in Liberal Arts programs enables you to complete your core courses in less than two years. Our undergraduate programs are designed for adults 23 years of age or older, who have earned their High School Diploma or GED, and who have 3 or more years of work experience. Learners who have already completed their core courses or who have previously earned more than 30 hours of college credit have the option to major in Organizational Leadership, Management & Organizational Development, Criminal Justice, or Emergency Services Management.

At Bethel, we want to make sure that your learning experience is suitable to your lifestyle, and you have every opportunity to succeed. With this in mind, we developed both an on campus program and an online program. Students can attend class just one night per week at a convenient Bethel campus, or enjoy the flexibility of a completely online format.

Whether you have no previous college experience, or are ready to finish a long-awaited degree, Bethel University is ready for you! A total of 128 credit hours must be completed to earn an undergraduate degree. These hours are divided up into core courses, major courses, and electives. Up to 80 of these hours can be earned or transferred through:

  • Previous College Credit
  • Portfolio Papers
  • CLEP/DTSS Tests
  • Military Experience and Courses
  • Challenge Exams
The Success program offers business degrees in Organizational Leadership, Management & Organizational Development, Criminal Justice, and Emergency Services Management for busy, working professionals in either an On-Campus or Online format.
