Bachelor of General Studies


The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree program is designed to serve adult students (age 25 or older) who wish to pursue a broadly defined and/or individually designed baccalaureate program. BGS students will work closely with an advisor to design a program of study to meet individual educational and career objectives. The flexibility of the BGS degree will enable students to tailor educational experiences to meet personal goals, broaden their appreciation of the arts and sciences, enhance career skills and competencies, and increase career opportunities and choices. All BGS students must complete a set of requirements for the degree .

Individualized Study Option


BGS students who select the individualized studies option will work closely with an advisor to design a program of study to meet individual educational and career objectives. This flexible program enables students to create their own “major,” utilizing courses from two or more academic disciplines. Previous hours earned at other institutions will be evaluated according to USI transfer policies.
