Bachelor of General Studies, B.G.S.:
A Degree That Fits You to a (Double) T
The 120-hour Bachelor of General Studies is a challenging and rewarding option for students who wish a greater degree of flexibility in their course of study.
As an interdisciplinary degree, it is not based on a specific major or minor. Instead, the student’s curriculum will consist of courses from three areas of concentration, at least two of which should be established minors or interdisciplinary programs recognized within the 2012-2013 catalog. Further, two of the three areas must be within The College of Arts & Sciences.
Thus, a well-designed B.G.S. degree can help a student prepare to pursue a particular intellectual interest, a professional ambition, or graduate study. The three concentration areas form a coherent specialization that is unavailable elsewhere in the university as an organized plan of study.
The B.G.S. is administered and supervised by the Student Division of the College of Arts & Sciences. Contact Dr. Jorge Iber, Associate Dean, Student Division, College of Arts and Sciences,
