Undergraduate Programs

Worcester State University offers 25 programs leading to a baccalaureate degree. Students may also elect to earn a minor in many of these programs or in the University’s 13 “minor only” programs.

 

Candidates for a baccalaureate degree must complete 120 semester-hour credits with a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) and a minimum of 2.0 GPA or higher in the departmental and ancillary courses of the major field of concentration. To receive a baccalaureate degree from Worcester State University, a student must:

  • Complete 30 of the last 40 credits at Worcester State University
  • Earn a majority of credits in the major at Worcester State University
  • Earn a majority of credits in the minor (if elected) at the University

Students completing their degrees within six years must meet the degree requirements in effect when they entered the University. After six years, students are subject to the degree requirements in effect for their year of graduation.

 

Although not required for graduation, students may elect to earn a minor by completing between 18 and 24 credits in a discipline other than the student’s major discipline.
