Four-year institutions

Bachelor’s degrees in the USA take four years to complete, giving you room for academic flexibility.

There are several types of four-year institutions, and they might not have ‘university’ in their name; universities can also be called ‘college’, ‘school’, ‘institute’ and more.

As part of the liberal arts philosophy, you are allowed to explore your academic interests during your bachelor’s. You can take classes from a variety of subjects before focusing on your major subject.
