Program Requirements

Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degrees do not require a minor, because the program is comprehensive.


How is the BGS degree different from an individualized major?

In the BGS program, you do not have to blend multiple academic areas (disciplines) toward a specific professional or academic goal.  

Instead, your coursework may be varied in focus, but must clearly explain how the BGS degree program would be personally beneficial in a way that the traditional degree (BA, BFA, BS, etc.) would not.

Consider the individualized major if you have a specific career or academic goal in mind.
