Overview

You can tailor your studies to your specific interests, plus prepare yourself for the rigors of a career that demands broad knowledge and in-depth skills.

If you started your degree at another accredited college or university, all or most of those credits can likely be transferred. Plus, if you have served in the military, that experience may translate into some transfer credits.

What will make your Ball State bachelor's degree stand out from the rest is that it is coming from a competitively priced program from a well-respected, accredited university with many national rankings and recognitions. For instance, we were named one of the best universities in the Midwest for six consecutive years by The Princeton Review and were one of only 15 percent of universities named a Military Friendly School by GI Jobs.
