The Bachelor of General Studies Degree (BGS) is an option for students who are seeking approaches to a  degree path somewhat different than the traditional majors and courses for a department program. Students who seek this degree should work closely with the Upper Division Advising Center and a Departmental Advisor to be aware of options and department availability for approving areas of emphasis. A student who chooses the Bachelor of General Studies Degree must complete the requirements outlined in the Undergraduate Catalog (consult the Undergraduate Catalog for additional information).

Advising services for students pursuing the BGS Degree are provided by the Upper Division Advising Center.

The Bachelor of General Studies is not available to any student who has already earned a bachelor's degree.
