Would you go back to school if you could get a Bachelors in 3 years?

By eliminating that extra year, three-year degree students save 25 percent in costs. Instead of taking 30 credits a year, these students take 40. During January, Hartwick runs a four-week course during which students may earn three to four credits on or off campus, including a number of international sites. Summer courses are not required, but a student may enroll in them—and pay extra. Three-year students get first crack at course registration. There are no changes in the number of courses professors teach or in their pay.

  • I did my BA in 3 years, but I worked SO hard and literally had no breaks. Not something I'd recommend!

  • I completed my BA and Masters in three years--the doctorate is taking a bit longer (that dissertation is a bear). I had no break--but got it done and retained much of the information (and kept my books for those moments when I need a reference or refresher). It is grueling though.

  • Yea, PS wifely most education degrees in Ohio are 5 years going straight to a Masters. I can't imagine if they had 3 year pre med or engineering degrees, though. I think that would be rather overwhelming. jmo.
