Accelerated. Economical. Uncompromised. That is the motto of Degree in 3, an augmented degree plan recently introduced by Purdue’s College of Liberal Arts.
This three-year plan has been designed for students who are driven and dedicated. Degree in 3 offers an accelerated plan to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology, Communication, English, History, Interdisciplinary Studies, Languages and Cultures, Philosophy, Political Science, Sociology, and Visual and Performing Arts. There are over 20 majors available in all the academic units.
You may ask yourself why you would want to graduate an entire year early, and that answer is simple: It saves you time and money. Degree in 3 allows students to enter the workforce or attend graduate school sooner than they would following traditional plans. In addition, Degree in 3 reduces the cost of attendance and accelerates your earning potential. A huge plus for many students is the fact that a three-year program can potentially save them $9,000 – $19,000.
While Degree in 3’s heavier workload may seem intimidating to some, the degree plan offers super helpful benefits that really make it worth investigating. First, no AP credit is required to graduate, and when it’s time to register for classes, you get to jump to the front of the line with priority registration and register first. On top of that, you get to build your resume with Purdue-sponsored leadership opportunities, and you get to launch your network through internships and meetings with alumni.
Purdue has taken steps to make it simple and enjoyable for you to wrap up a degree in just three years. So if you think Degree in 3 is for you, visit the website and apply!
