Degree Programs

Your degree matters! At IUPUC, you can earn—or get started toward earning—undergraduate and graduate degrees from two globally recognized Big Ten schools: Indiana University and Purdue University.

Learn more about our degree programs. If the degree you seek cannot be completed in its entirety on our campus, you can take prerequisite, general education, and some required courses before transferring to Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), another IU campus, or another college or university of your choosing. Working closely with an academic advisor, you will develop a personalized plan of study. And, by taking classes as long as possible in Columbus, you will save the time and expense involved in moving or commuting, keeping your college costs and student debt low.

If you complete one of these bachelor's degree programs at IUPUC, you will earn an Indiana University (IU) degree, with the exception of mechanical engineering which is an IUPUI program that awards a Purdue University (PU) degree. Note: All courses in the IUPUI mechanical engineering program can be completed at IUPUC.

In addition, you can add a concentration to some areas of study; for example, you can earn a bachelor's in business with a concentration in accounting or a bachelor's in elementary education with a concentration in special education. You may also earn a degree in a major area of study and a minor in another; for example, you can earn a bachelor's in mechanical engineering or nursing with a minor in business.

You can also earn an appropriate bachelor's degree at IUPUC that will prepare you for graduate study at IUPUI, another IU campus, or another university. Before you can apply for admission to graduate programs in these fields (see list below), you nearly always are required to have a bachelor's degree. As long as you complete specific courses as part of your undergraduate studies, your bachelor's degree can generally be in one of several disciplines. Your IUPUC academic advisor will help you explore your options for an appropriate bachelor's degree for graduate study in these pre-professional paths.

IUPUC offers two graduate programs*: (1) the Master of Business Administration or MBA Program and (2) the Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling (MHC) degree. If you are interested in either of these graduate programs, talk to your academic advisor about an appropriate bachelor's degree.
