Program Overview

The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) is a flexible, interdisciplinary program designed for students who want a degree tailored to their career goals. Working with an academic advisor, you can select specific courses from emphases and general electives that help you develop knowledge and skills to prepare for your chosen career. A final capstone project integrates your individual courses around a common theme, allowing you to synthesize knowledge across your areas of study. The BIS degree program also provides a foundation for those who desire to pursue graduate studies in a program that does not require a discipline-specific undergraduate degree.

Program Highlights
