Bachelor of General Studies Program

The Bachelor of General Studies is an interdisciplinary program that promotes study in a wide range of disciplines - the arts, foreign languages, humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and professional studies - that enable the student to develop a broad view, a capacity for critical thinking, and a fundamental understanding of human nature, society and values. It should not be confused with the General Studies Program, which is a required component in all undergraduate degree programs.

Students completing the interdisciplinary, undergraduate BGS program will demonstrate:

  • An understanding of the core knowledge of the distribution areas
  • The ability to find relevant data and use it in appropriate ways
  • The ability to read and comprehend literature appropriate to the distribution areas
  • The ability to write in a manner appropriate to the distribution areas
