Bay Path University is committed to educating students in a variety of ways and in a variety of disciplines. Through its instruction in the arts and humanities, mathematics, sciences and social sciences, the University provides a foundation of broad-based liberal arts education for its degree programs. All associate and baccalaureate degree programs provide students with the theory necessary for understanding the dynamics and challenges of the world of work and the opportunity to apply that knowledge in the classroom as well as in the workplace through internships, practica, or fieldwork. Various minors and certificates are also available, allowing students to pursue additional specific areas of interest.
To provide students with opportunities to customize their programs while ensuring a relevant curriculum, each baccalaureate degree program consists of three component areas:
- the Bay Path University core curriculum, the general education courses required of all students;
- the core curriculum in the major; and
- general electives, which may be used to pursue a minor, certificate or to create a tailored focus of courses.
