Our Programs

We offer you a variety of majors and minors that allow you to blend coursework from a variety of disciplines in unique and personalized ways through a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in applied technology, a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS), and Bachelor of Liberal Studies (BLS), as well as minors in American Indian studies, Black studies, and women's and gender studies. The school is also home to the exploratory studies program, which offers you guidance if you’ve not selected a major, and the University foundations program, which assists you with transitioning to a four-year university.
