The training our students receive prepares them for the challenges they will face in society when they graduate. At UC, students can acquire specific disciplinary knowledge, enhance their ethical rigor, critical judgment and problem-solving skills, immerse themselves in a research culture, improve their teamwork skills, and acquire those skills associated with entrepreneurship and needed for effective communication.

Study Programs


College Program


UC College Program is a 4-year university program that leads to a Bachelor´s degree. There are three areas of knowledge in the program:  Arts and Humanities, Natural Sciences and Maths, and Social Sciences.

This academic program that leads to a Bachelor´s degree, includes a group of required minimum courses that are common to all areas of knowledge and that give the Program its own characteristic.

In order to complete the Program, all College students must select at least one Major, which will allow them to deepen their knowledge in a discipline or in a specific topic according to their inclinations and vocation. More Information about Majors.

Additionally, students can choose to compliment and/or extend their professional profile by completing a Minor according to the emphasis that best suits their interests. More Information about Minors.

Progression of studies leading to professional qualifications and/or UC Master's degrees.

Once students have approved 400 credits and have obtained their Bachelor's degree, they may continue to obtain a UC professional qualification and/or Master's degree, according to the requirements set by each faculty.

Transfer after completing 200 credits

Once the student reaches 200 credits, he or she may choose to go to another program within the University. In order to do so, all majors have assigned a quota strictly based on a previously established academic average in certain courses.



Steps to proceed to post-graduate studies

Once they obtain their Bachelor´s degree, College graduates may apply, based on their academic performance, to Master´s and PhD programs at the UC, as well as, to other post-graduate programs in Chile and around the world.
