Bachelor of Integrative Studies

A Bachelor of Integrative Studies (BIS) degree is a single multi-disciplinary program – offered on campus or fully online – dedicated to fostering the ideals of a broad-based twenty-first century education.

The BIS requires students to complete three 18-credit hour major concentrations or two concentrations and one minor – a structure that encourages the exploration and analysis of diverse disciplinary approaches to critical thinking and problem solving. While the BIS requires concentrated study within carefully planned fields of inquiry, it also offers the freedom to choose among a wide range of academic areas of interest to design a major that aligns with twenty-first century workforce demands and emerging fields of study. A GGC student who earns this degree will have achieved a broad-based education grounded in a solid core curriculum, while drawing upon focused areas of study to simultaneously develop an understanding of the connections among disciplines.
