What are the Degree Requirements?
A bachelor’s degree at SOU consists of 180 credits. 60 of those 180 credits must be upper divison (any 300 or 400 level course). The 180 credits are typically split up into three sections (see chart below - approximately 60 credits of Univeristy Studies, approximately 60 credits in your major (the number of credits depends on your major), and approximately 60 credits of electives and/or a minor). University Studies is SOU’s term for general education. You will need to complete your major requirements - approximately 60 credits, but every major is a little different. Then you may complete a minor, which is optional, or electives to complete 180 credits.
