The Online Integrated Studies Degree!

You make your own choices in life; let those experiences drive your pursuit of an Integrated Studies (Bachelor of Science) degree.

The Integrated Studies degree allows you to forge your path by designing a curriculum through your choice of three (3) academic minors, and taking 18 distinct hours in each minor and 24 advanced hours, including INTG3301 and INTG4301. The online Integrated Studies degree offers the same benefits as the face-to-face on-campus program, but with the added convenience of fitting into your already busy life.

About Your Degree!

At SHSU Online, we understand that your degree needs to work for you. Your degree isn’t just a piece of paper – it signifies your accomplishment and expertise to the world. 

    • All Credits Are Equal

      You earn course credit hours by completing in-person and/or online courses or transferring credits from another institution.

    • Your Degree Will Not Say "Online"

      Neither will your transcript – even if you earn all your course credit hours online. Your degree will be the same regardless of how you earn your credit hours.
