  • Core Courses (45–51 hours): Subjects include basic sciences, English composition, humanities, mathematics, social sciences, and religion. Some credit for these courses can be obtained through CLEP testing (see www.collegeboard.com to acquire more information regarding the subject tests only)
  • Liberal Arts Electives (9 hours): The courses within this requirement include courses in humanities, science, or social science.
  • Major Courses (45–57 hours): Business Management (45 hours) courses include business administration, economics, and accounting; Criminal Justice (57 hours) courses include Criminology, Criminalistics, Terrorism, and Interview and Interrogation.
  • General Education Electives (remaining hours up to a total of 120): Hours may vary based on transfer credit received and remaining course requirements. These are courses of your choice to broaden your knowledge and skills.
  • Note: At least 30 credit hours must be completed through Huntingdon College in order to obtain a degree.

Because your classes will meet only one night a week in five-week sessions, the accelerated course format requires student preparation and work outside of the formal course structure. In many courses, students will have both reading and writing assignments due the first night a class meets. Class size is kept small, ranging from 12 to 20, so that students can interact easily. The personalized attention and excellent teaching for which Huntingdon College is known are part of the Evening Studies programs as well as the traditional day program.
