A BSC education prepares you to pursue your passion and reach your full potential – no matter what field you choose. Our January term gives you four weeks to take a deep-dive into one topic – in a campus classroom or on the other side of the globe – and our top-notch academic programs give you the skills to succeed on the Hilltop and beyond.

You’ll find your own path, while developing the tools employers want, such as teamwork, critical thinking, data analysis, and the ability to connect ideas. You’ll take what you learn beyond the classroom – by participating in internships, conducting research with a professor, engaging in one-on-one mentorship, performing service projects, or traveling abroad for an academic adventure.

You’ll experience learning in a new way with a great return on investment. Small class sizes – our student-faculty ratio is 12:1 – and teaching-focused faculty ensure you’ll be challenged to do your very best. For a price that aligns with public universities, you’ll receive a personalized education, leadership opportunities, experiences that show you the world, and a fast track to graduate in four years.
