The Bachelor of General Studies degree is an interdisciplinary degree designed for students later in their academic career, with over 75 hours, and broad interests rather than a focused area of specialization.
The individualized major is intended for students with a clear sense of direction, motivation and strong concept of an educational program that will best serve the individual's future needs and is not found in a major offered at Missouri State University.
