What is BSIS?
The Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (BSIS) is a unique degree for the Delta region. It provides a program of study targeted toward students who desire a non-traditional approach to learning within a broad range of disciplines: the BSIS program allows students to prepare for careers requiring functional knowledge of multiple disciplines.
The BSIS is a university-wide degree program that enables students to create interdisciplinary specialties that prepare them for careers in a world that increasingly bridges academic disciplines. Students pursue two or three subject-area concentrations that represent academic interests they wish to integrate into a meaningful program.
A four-course core offers students the intellectual tools to identify connections between their concentrations and engage in interdisciplinary problem-solving. The interdisciplinary core is issues-driven and provides pragmatic and thought-provoking approaches to thinking, research, problem solving, and communication. Students, working with the program director, will choose two or three major areas of concentration.
