The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) degree is the degree program for students returning to school and those whose academic needs and occupational plans are not met with a traditional academic major or minor program. Really, the BIS degree is all about looking at education from a perspective that offers students a new structure to access the best of what UNA offers.
After all, the world is rapidly changing and education has to change with it or, better yet, direct that change. Interdisciplinary programs have developed in response to demands from employers that college graduates have diverse "ready-to-work" skills, the ability to think across traditional academic lines during periods of change and excellent communication and people skills. To meet these demands we offer students a flexible and individualized path to completion of the Bachelors degree by offering areas of emphasis containing complementary courses from different academic disciplines across all academic colleges. Our responsiveness to student and employer needs explains in part why UNA's BIS degree program is THE choice for so many adult learners today and for traditional students who need a unique academic program of study. "Start to Finish" is our motto and we're ready to assist unique students with their unique needs.
Study, graduate, and apply for employment with the confidence that your BIS degree was developed with care around your goals and your interests. Since its inception in 2010, this fully accredited program has guided over 120 students to graduation. Approximately 30 BIS students, most over the age of 24, graduated during the Spring 2014 Commencement. "Start to Finish" is more than a motto, it's our organizational objective.
