Integrated Studies

The BIS degree helps UTC to further meet the educational needs of our diverse community by allowing students to build a personalized program of study focused on a theme that integrates two or more disciplines. The degree program attracts individuals who have previously earned credit hours and wish to complete a degree as well as individuals whose educational goals are not met by traditional degree offerings. Essential Elements of a BIS curricular plan include (1) integrated, interdisciplinary program of study focused on a theme and related disciplines, tailored to specific student goals (2) two or more disciplines (3) a capstone experience portfolio, which includes a reflective essay, self-assessment, and formal presentation demonstrating integration of the multiple disciplines.
