Bachelor of Arts in Professional Studies

The B.A. in Professional Studies is available only to students in the External Degree Program. This major offers adult learners the option of designing a plan of study to pursue a special career or other interest not available through JSC's other majors. It also allows EDP students, who may have college credits from a number of institutions and life experience, to weave together the threads of their prior learning into a coherent degree program. Students are asked to declare and explore an area of special emphasis while meeting the EDP general education and other requirements for a bachelor's degree.


Note: It is not possible to do a minor along with the major in professional studies unless the credits for the minor are in addition to the 120 credits required for a bachelor's degree.
