At Piedmont, the courses you take are organized under four schools:

• Arts and Sciences

• Business

• Education

• Nursing

While working toward your degree, you will have the opportunity to study in one or more areas, depending on the major you choose and the concentration within that major. You may also select a minor area of study, which is a group of courses outside your major field that you can explore in depth. Piedmont encourages study across multiple disciplines, and you can even select related courses in different schools to create your own interdisciplinary degree program.

You will also have many opportunities to travel as part of your studies at Piedmont. These travel-study programs range from just a few days, to several weeks, to an entire semester studying abroad.

One of the most important skills you will develop at Piedmont is the ability to think critically about personal, social, religious, scientific, and political issues. To this end, the College focuses special attention on critical thinking through a variety of activities and programs inside and outside the classroom.

At the undergraduate level, the College offers Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA), Bachelor of Science (BS), and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degrees.

Piedmont also offers a variety of graduate degrees in business and education, including the Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT), Master of Arts in Education (MA), Education Specialist (EdS) and Education Doctor (EdD).
