Baccalaureate degree clarification

Hi everyone, could somebody clarify what a 'baccalaureate degree' is? Just want to make sure I have my terms right when looking into colleges and degree programs.

Hey there! A 'baccalaureate degree,' also commonly known as a 'bachelor's degree,' is a four-year undergraduate degree program typically offered by colleges and universities. When you pursue a baccalaureate degree, you'll choose a specific field of study or major. Throughout the program, you'll take a combination of general education courses, major-specific courses, and electives to fulfill the degree requirements.

Some common baccalaureate degrees include Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA), and Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). Best of luck in your search!
