People with a bachelor’s degree earn significantly more in their lifetime than those with some college or an associate’s degree. But we’re not here to just provide you with a degree. At Hamline, we value your perspective and life experience and have customized a pathway to meet you where you are in your educational journey—whether you’re finishing a degree you started years ago or transferring from a community college.
With Hamline’s online degree completion program, you’ll find the path that’s right for you, featuring:
- An exemplary, private liberal arts education that focuses on career-enhancing skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and communications know-how across platforms.
- Highly sought-after business and psychology majors that will give you a competitive edge.
- An array of interesting core curriculum courses, including tracks in global orientation and digital worlds, to best prepare you to expand your opportunities and advance your career.
- Extended support so that no matter when or where you’re doing your coursework, you’ll have the right support at the right time.
The program is offered fully online. Courses are taught in eight-week sessions with six sessions per year (two sessions each in fall, spring, and summer semesters). See the Academic Calendar for specific session dates.
Students choose the pace that fits best with their schedule; they may enroll part-time, full-time, or alternate. Students may take up to two courses per eight-week session, and are considered full-time if enrolled in 12 or more credits across a 16-week semester.
There are two two degree options in the Online Degree Completion program:
- Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology
- Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)
A Hamline degree requires a minimum of 128 semester credits and a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0. All students are required to complete a minimum of 56 credits at Hamline, including at least 16 credits within their major. Each major has a set of required courses that must be satisfied either by taking courses through Hamline or transferring in qualifying courses.
