The University Studies program provides students with the opportunity to integrate areas of study that are of special interest to them. This flexibility allows the student to create a combination of courses that may not exist in other degree programs. This option may appeal to students who have specific post-baccalaureate degree paths in mind.
Students majoring in University Studies can earn either a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts degree. The major requires the completion of 50 hours specific to the University Studies program. Students are required to select either two 12-hour concentrations or one 24-hour concentration. In addition to the concentration classes, students must complete 12 hours of foundation courses (beyond what is taken for General Education), 12 hours of upper-division coursework, and a 2-hour Capstone Experience course.
