We offer you a choice of majors, minors, and certificates that allow you to blend coursework from a variety of disciplines in unique and personalized ways. The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) and the Bachelor of Liberal Studies (BLS) enable you to bring together multiple interests to prepare for many different careers. Our interdisciplinary minors and certificates provide additional training and focus for any major. The school is also home to the Exploratory Studies program, which offers you guidance if you’ve not yet selected a major, and the University Foundations program, which assists you with transitioning to a four-year university as well as developing strategies for academic and professional success.
