Bachelor of Integrative Studies

What is the BIS Degree?

The Bachelor of Integrative Studies Degree (BIS) is a College of Arts and Sciences non-major degree that provides maximum freedom for the student who wishes to take a multidisciplinary, individualized approach to the design of an educational program while maintaining a focus on career and professional goals. 

The BIS is an individualized program in which the student is personally responsible for the research and design of his or her own degree.

A student must have a minimum of 60 earned hours to consider the BIS degree.

The BIS consists of two concentrations:

Integrative Studies-General
  • Students choose a minimum of two academic departments.
  • Students select courses that combine to be supportive of their career goals.
Integrative Studies-Two Minors
  • Students complete the requirements for two minors.
All students must complete the IGST 40099 Senior Project course to graduate with the BIS degree. This is for both concentrations.
