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 Program typically requires a minimum of 34 earned course credits. An Independent Major is also an option available to students who wish to pursue a field of study that cannot be met through an established Berea College major program.
