Bachelor of Science in Integrated Studies

2018-Graduating-Adult-w-Family-BGS

The Bachelor of Science in Integrated Studies is an interdisciplinary degree that allows students to design a curriculum that meets individual goals by connecting three Sam Houston State University minors, a capstone Integrated Studies course, the Texas core curriculum, and appropriate supporting elective courses. During the senior year, Integrated Studies majors will complete a project in their capstone course that requires the integration of knowledge and ideas from the three areas of study.

The Integrated Studies degree is offered both in a traditional face-to-face classroom and completely online. Our online students find that the flexibility in course scheduling has given them the opportunity to accomplish their academic goals while maintaining their busy lifestyle. If you choose to complete your degree online, please note that only a select number of minors are offered entirely online.
