The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) is designed for students who want a multidisciplinary major to meet educational and career objectives. Students who pursue the BGS need a high degree of motivation and independence. Students design their curriculum across three main components. Components may be made up of courses from a single department or from a single theme. These degree requirements allow students to build an individualized major that reflects their personal academic interests. Careers options are as varied as the combination of curricula.
