The Bilingual Undergraduate Studies for Collegiate Advancement (BUSCA) Program, a five-semester Associate of Arts degree program at La Salle University, offers Hispanic students a unique opportunity to transform their lives and their futures.
BUSCA offers an inclusive, supportive learning community that focuses on the distinctive academic challenges of Spanish-dominant students. The BUSCA faculty, staff, and administration respect each individual student and strive to build on each student’s educational foundation, maximizing on academic strengths and actively addressing weaknesses.
As the BUSCA students strive to develop a stronger foundational base of knowledge, improved academic and English language skills, deeper intellectual curiosity, and increased self-confidence, they are challenged by a rigorous liberal arts-based curriculum and a demanding and nurturing faculty and staff. Upon graduating with a valuable degree and sixty fully transferable credits into the bachelor’s degree program at La Salle University, BUSCA graduates are equipped to pursue further education and to become lifelong learners and bilingual leaders in our communities, society, and world.
