Typically, a bachelors degree is a four year program of study. The bachelor's degree has many different majors (programs of study). Typically the first two years are concerned with the general education cluster with some prerequisite courses particular to the major. Thus, within the first two years you will be required to complete courses in English, Math (if the program of study requires math), exact sciences, humanities, social sciences etc. The last two years are more concerned with advanced course work particular to the major field of study to include major requirements, and major electives. In most cases, half of the elective area must be taken at a junior/senior level.
