Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) Degree Programs

The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies degree provides educational opportunities not readily available through traditional departmental degree programs. Students have flexibility in developing a course of study appropriate to their goals by selecting courses from several departments and institutes in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students may also include courses from other colleges of this university in their interdisciplinary program.

It is not the function of the interdisciplinary program to combine an assortment of course work as a last-minute effort to facilitate a student’s graduation.

The following is a list of current Interdisciplinary Studies degrees and information on how to enroll. To view previous BIS checklists, please click here.
