In the united States, a "four-year degree" usually refers to the completion of a program of studies of the student. The most common undergraduate degree is a bachelor's Degree, either Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS). Some universities offer specialized degrees, such as Bachelor of Engineering. Four years is the typical amount of time it takes to complete the undergraduate courses, if the student attends full-time. "Full-time" means that at least X number of classes are taken each semester (or quarter). However, many students take more than four years to complete the course work, and some complete it in less than four years. While the four-year degree usually refers to a title of degree, four years, the component is not necessarily fixed. It all boils down to how many credits you take or complete a year. It is possible to increase or reduce the time it takes to earn a full bachelor's Degree to meet their individual needs or the time you have available for the study. You can take a part-time bachelor's degree program and take a lighter load but by doing this you can take up to 8 years to obtain your degree. On the other hand, it is also possible to obtain a Degree in just 2 years of use, accelerated degree programs which is today offered by a lot of respected schools and colleges. The most flexible of the Degree Programs are online programs where the learning is done through the internet. With this type of course you choose the hours of study, and this can be done from the comfort of your own home.
