Complete These Degrees and Minors at IUPUC
As a liberal arts student at IUPUC, you can complete these degrees and minors on our Columbus campus:
You can complete your degree in as little as three years if you take fall, spring, and summer courses on a year-round basis as a full-time student. Graduating in four years or less will keep your education affordable, meaning you will need fewer student loans or scholarships to help pay your tuition expenses.
You can also take classes as a part-time liberal arts student, however, and work toward a degree at your own pace to accommodate your work, family, and lifestyle needs.
These Indiana University degrees require 120 credit hours of general education, elective, and required courses. You must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher to remain in good academic standing toward graduation.
