Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies

120 credit hours

The purpose of the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (B.I.S.) degree is to provide students the opportunity to apply coursework in multiple fields towards an undergraduate degree. It is well suited for students whose career goals call for training in more than one discipline or who want a breadth of knowledge in several fields rather than a depth of knowledge in a single discipline. For information about the B.I.S. degree contact the College of Arts and Humanities.

NOTE: The B.I.S. degree cannot be used in a dual degree. No more than one business minor may be used as part of the B.I.S. major.

The B.I.S. degree consists of a multiple discipline academic major, other requirements, and electives totaling at least 120 credit hours. No more than 30 credit hours from any of the business disciplines (accounting, business, business computer information systems, economics, finance, management, and marketing) may be used to fulfill the B.I.S. degree requirements. For the B.I.S. degree, the multiple discipline academic major is comprised of two minors. Any single area minor offered at Angelo State University may be used providing it has no less than eighteen credit hours with at least six of them at the advanced level, with the exception that no more than one business minor (Business Administration, Management, Marketing, Accounting, or Finance) may be used to fulfill the multiple discipline academic major, as this would exceed the 30 credit hour limit for business courses mentioned above.
