Is a Bachelor’s Degree an undergraduate or a graduate degree?

Undergraduate Degrees in Psychology

A BA, Bachelor's in Arts, and a BS, Bachelor's in Science, are both undergraduate degrees. Although a Bachelor's Degree is a step up from an Associate's Degree, both the Bachelor's and the Associate's are considered undergraduate, paraprofessional degrees. It usually takes about four school years, eight semesters or 12 quarters, of full-time enrollment to earn a Bachelor's. If an Associate's Degree was earned first, the Bachelor's usually takes about two more school years. Many schools allow part-time enrollment too. Community colleges, since they are two-year schools, do not usually offer upper division Bachelor's level courses unless a four-year college or university happens to offer them through the community college.
