Build the foundation for your future

For more than 100 years, the Bachelor of Arts (BA) program at the University of Pennsylvania’s College of Liberal and Professional Studies (LPS) has welcomed students to the University to complete their undergraduate degrees. Our non-traditional students arrive at Penn from a wide variety of paths, including non-profit, military duty, the corporate world and transferring from other institutions. Many balance work, family life and their studies. At LPS, we facilitate your ability to earn a BA degree at Penn by providing an Ivy League experience on a flexible schedule, and with guidance and support from program staff.

Our BA program boasts more than 50 majors in a diverse range of subjects across the arts and sciences. In recent years, our students have pursued research with faculty members, achieved promotions in their current jobs, or gone on to study at medical, law and business schools. As a Penn graduate, you become a member of a world-class intellectual community, create new career opportunities and join an alumni network that spans the globe.
