University College Graduate

The Bachelor of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies is designed for students who have diverse academic interests and prefer to opt for fewer hours in three areas rather than a single major or a major/minor option. It requires 15 semester credit hours (SCH) in each of the three areas along with a capstone course that requires students to use these areas of studies in a concentrations' internship. Besides the core curriculum, students will be able to take 24 hours of course electives and 6 hours of study abroad or foreign language courses to complete their degree.
