Applied Humanities Bachelor's Degree Program


The OSU Office of Institutional Diversity has honored the Applied Humanities Bachelor’s Degree Program in their 2022 State of Diversity Address. The State of Diversity at Oregon State Address is an annual opportunity to highlight initiatives undertaken by OSU community members across the university to advance equity and justice.

Launching in fall 2022, this new online degree program emphasizes supporting adult learners who have accumulated college credits to complete their path to a degree to support their career success.

The program was designed for learners with some college experience but who have not yet earned a degree, and includes many learners who are first-generation college students, parents and students of color. By helping students build a strong foundation in the liberal arts with a focus on cultural responsiveness and communication, this innovative program will also help students get to the finish line by providing free tuition for their final 12 Ecampus credits.
