Bachelor of Arts

Printer-friendly version

The College offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in various majors. Wide exploration in general education is combined with focused study and an internship within the major, culminating in a two-semester Degree Project completed during the final year. Students admitted to the College who intend to pursue a B.A. must submit an acceptable midpoint portfolio in order to advance to upper-level study toward completion of the degree.

It has long been a tradition at Burlington College for students to design majors that meet their own particular needs and interests. Today, a significant number of our students work with their advisors to individualize a major. The Individualized Major can be a variation on one of the College’s existing majors or it can be a course of study unique to the student’s interests.
