The University has arranged its curriculum under one school: School of Business and Government, and five departments: General Studies, Music, Religion, Psychology and Counseling, Teacher Education. Each department is chaired by a dean or department chair. This arrangement is for organizational purposes rather than to compartmentalize subject matter. The University’s general objectives promote cooperation and correlation across organizational lines to achieve unity of learning.

Associate of Arts degree graduates must complete a minimum of 60 semester hours. Those graduating with the Bachelor of Arts degree must complete a minimum of 120 semester hours. All graduates must complete a core of general education classes.
