The Bachelor of University Studies degree is designed to allow the student the flexibility of designing a course of study which fits with his or her interests and goals in life. The student must have a degree plan approved by the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The proposed degree plan must meet with the generally accepted goals of a bachelor's degree. The degree plan will consist of the following items:

  • Completion of the General Education Requirements.
  • A statement of the interests and goals the student expects to meet by choosing the Bachelor of University Studies degree. The statement should include the five University Abilities the student expects to demonstrate through his/her portfolio.
  • A program of study consisting of a minimum of 120 semester hours with at least 50 semester hours of upper-level credit, and an area of concentration of 32 semester hours. The courses may cross departmental lines but the areas must be related and justified by the student's goals. The candidate for the Bachelor of University Studies degree must meet all other general requirements and obligations for graduation.
  • The student's Senior Portfolio should demonstrate the Abilities required by the divisions reflected in the concentration. Projects for the Senior Portfolio should be selected from upper level course work.
