Marquette's Adult Degree Programs offer bachelor's degrees in four major areas of study:

Each degree program is built upon a core curriculum designed to provide students with broad exposure to the humanities as well as social and behavioral sciences. This liberal arts core provides Marquette Adult Degree students with an education rooted in a rich Jesuit tradition -- one that nurtures the intellectual maturity and moral integrity needed to be an effective citizen in the world today and tomorrow.

Declaring a major

Students are required to declare a major prior to the end of their sophomore year or the completion of 60 credit hours. Students failing to do so jeopardize completing core requirements in a timely fashion. Courses required for each major can be downloaded as an Abobe Acrobat PDF from the Undergraduate Bulletin.
