Academic Programs

Principia College has two programs for international students:

  • A four-year Degree Program leading to a BA or BS degree
  • A one-year Enrichment Program for non-degree-seeking students

Four-year Degree Program

For those students who desire a degree from Principia, we offer the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Sciences degree programs. More information about Principia College's academic programs can be found here: www.principiacollege.edu/academics.

International students follow the same academic program as other Principia students, and course selection is based on general degree requirements and the student's area of interest. More information can be found in the College Catalog.

It should be noted that Principia does not offer master's or other graduate degrees, nor does its curriculum include remedial academic courses.

one-year Enrichment Program

This program allows students to experience Principia's learning environment but not pursue a degree. The program begins in August and ends in May and includes ten fifteen-week courses over two terms. Students are encouraged to take a variety of courses during the year — some courses recommended by an academic advisor, others of the student's choosing.

There are generally two types of students who choose the one-year program:

  • those have recently completed secondary school and want to have a different educational and cultural experience before they enter university in their own country;
  • those who already have an undergraduate degree.  (If you already have a degree and plan to apply for financial aid, you may only apply for the one-year program).
