Considering studying in our Degree in Three program? Check out this video to learn how it all works!
The Degree in Three program at Southern New Hampshire University allows you to earn the same exact Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Business degree as your peers, but this unique program combines traditional classes with learning experiences that take place outside of the classroom. You’ll apply what you learn in class to the real world of business through on-campus workshops, civic events in the community and team-based projects.
Besides the hours of real-world experience you’ll be adding to your résumé, you’ll earn your bachelor’s degree in only three years with no weekend, summer or evening courses required and still have plenty of time to participate in athletics and campus life. While others are still taking classes toward their degree, you can use your “fourth year” to pursue graduate studies or to start your career ahead of your peers.
The Degree in Three program makes sense financially as well. You’ll save a full year in tuition and room and board (over $40,000), and there’s the potential to be earning a full year’s salary after graduation while your peers are still in school.
