Individuals who want a general academic program and who may not be sure what they want to do usually choose a four-year college or university. Such a program lays the foundation for more advanced studies and professional work. Four-year colleges and universities offer bachelor's degrees (the B.A. and B.S.) in most areas in the arts and sciences, such as English literature, foreign languages, history, economics, political science, biology, zoology, chemistry, and in many other fields.

In the healthcare industry, a 4-year degree opens doors to a number of high growth occupations. Occupational therapists and physicians assistants typically receive their training at a 4 year college. A 4-year degree can also be a step towards further training, such as a professional or Master's degree that would open doors to a career as a doctor, pharmacist, physical therapist, or medical and health services manager.
