The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree is an undergraduate degree specifically for adult learners who have delayed or interrupted their studies, or for whom their original major is no longer appropriate.
- A student is required to have at least 75 earned credit hours with a overall GPA of 2.0 or higher and complete general studies, math and English composition before a BGS major can be declared.
- The BGS will allow you to build a custom concentration out of two minors, rather than a single content focus while meeting all bachelor’s degree requirements. It is designed to be multidisciplinary and have maximum flexibility to suit the needs of a wide variety of students.
Your path to a bachelor’s degree will be built around your unique college credit history, and, if applicable, incorporate transfer credits and past major-specific work.
