John Leland Baptist College
 IN PROGRESS
 
BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE
IN GENERAL STUDIES
 
The Bachelor of Arts in General Studies allows the students to earn a bachelor’s degree while pursing only those areas of study that are of a particular interest to themselves. Furthermore, it is through this program that students can develop a major or minor focus in a field not yet available at John Leland.
 
 
SPECIAL MAJORS
Students wishing to pursue a bachelor’s degree with a major or minor not currently available at John Leland can do so by taking the appropriate number of courses On-Line through an accredited college or one of the many colleges and universities in our area.
 
For example, if a student wanted to develop a major in History, he or she can do so by taking the necessary courses off campus to fulfill the requirements of that major.  Each major or minor will be developed along the general requirements found for that major or minor at University of Kentucky. The exact number of courses that will be needed off campus will, of course, be determined by the major the student pursues.
 
All such majors in this program must be worked out and approved by the Academic Dean. This program is contingent upon the student being accepted as a special student at one of the colleges or universities of his or her choice.
 
The General Education requirements are the same as the Bachelor’s of Arts of General Studies unless a specific major requires some modification.
 
Furthermore, regardless of one’s  major, this special program requires the same 39 semester hours of Biblical Studies as found in the requirements for General Studies program.  
 
The Bachelor's Degree in General Studies requires 128 semester hours of classroom work. The requirements are as follows:
