Online Undergraduate Degrees

Bachelor of General Studies

The BGS degree was created to provide you with the flexibility you need to finish your degree with face-to-face or online courses and a customized degree path.

The BGS will allow you to build a custom concentration out of two minors, rather than a single content focus. Your path to a degree will be built around your unique college credit history, and, if applicable, incorporate transfer credits and past major-specific work. Minors that are offered entirely online include: business, childhood studies, criminal justice, economics, health informatics and information management, and psychology. Most general education courses are also online.
