Bachelor of General Studies

The bachelor of general studies (BGS) degree is a multidisciplinary program created to provide an undergraduate education of the highest quality, while offering students the flexibility to complete their bachelor's degree online or in an on-campus classroom setting. Students who complete this degree will gain a wide breadth of knowledge from areas such as management, social sciences, humanities, health sciences and the arts.

Our program is designed for those students who have completed the equivalent of the first two years of college (core requirements) and want to earn a bachelor's degree. The BGS program provides opportunities for students to:
