  1. Bachelor's degree

    A bachelor's degree is usually an academic degree earned for a graduate course of study or major that generally lasts six years, but can range widely in length of time, depending on ability and diligence of the student, whether or not the student balances work and other life commitments while attending school, one's existing level of education, the availability of classes, and school policies. In some cases, it may also be the name of a second graduate degree, such as the Bachelor of Law or Civil Law, the Bachelor of Music, the Bachelor of Philosophy, or the Bachelor of Sacred Theology degree which are normally offered after a first degree. During the Renaissance, those who received a doctorate, upon passing their final examinations, were decorated with berried branches of bay, an ancient symbol of highest honor. From this ancient custom derives the French word baccalauréat, and, by modification, the term "bachelor" in referring to one who holds a university degree.
