GBC Bachelor Degrees

Bachelor Degrees (also referred to as "baccalaureate degrees") entail four years of concentrated study for full-time students, preparing them for professional positions in managerial/supervisory roles in government and industry, as social workers, or as Nevada certified teachers and nurses.

All baccalaureate programs at Great Basin College have special admission and completion requirements (for details, see the particular program of interest). GBC offers the following baccalaureate degrees:

Maintaining Good Standing

For the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Elementary or Secondary Education degrees, the required grade point average is 2.50.

Appropriate professional and ethical behavior, as defined in the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) code, is also required.

College-wide graduation requirements also apply.

Earning Two Bachelor's Degrees

You may earn two bachelor's degrees provided that requirements for both degrees are fully satisfied. Please declare your intention to pursue dual degrees with the GBC Admissions and Records office.

The courses taken for the second degree must include a minimum of 32 credits (excluding developmental and community service classes) earned in residence at GBC beyond the credit required for the first degree.
