Degree Program Overview

Unlike a traditional Major/Minor degree program, the Bachelor of General Studies does not ask you to focus your efforts on a single discipline. Instead, the BGS degree combines your choice of three (3) minors and a capstone project. It’s your unique degree, customized to reflect your unique abilities, background, and goals.

Regardless if you choose the on-campus minors, the online minors, or a combination of the two, this is your degree, customized to suit your life. 

Certain minor combinations may not be allowed if coursework is duplicated.
