The most important consideration in your decision about whether to apply to Viterbo is to make sure we have the program of study which interests you. In choosing a program of study, it is important to recognize the difference between university education in the U.S. and other parts of the world. A few of these differences are:
- U.S. university education requires students to take classes, about 25% of the required credits, in general subjects outside of your primary area of study.
- Some fields of study in the U.S. have specific licensing requirements which differ in each state (education and nursing, for example), and may have course requirements that are very specific to practicing the profession in the U.S. or the particular state.
- Some fields of study require significant amounts of further study beyond the bachelors degree and thus large amounts of financial resources (for example medicine, 8-12 years total).
