Academic Programs

The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree is an interdisciplinary degree that allows students to design a curriculum that meets individual goals by connecting the Texas core curriculum, 3 academic minors, one General Studies capstone course, and appropriate supporting courses. During the senior year, BGS majors will complete a capstone course (UNIV 4301) in which the student will complete a project that requires the integration of knowledge and ideas from the three areas of study.

Requirements to Apply

  • Students must be a junior or senior in good standing with at least a 2.0 overall GPA to declare a BGS major.
  • Prior to declaration, students must attend an information session with an academic advisor.
  • Students must be a BGS major and have a minimum 2.0 overall GPA to register for UNIV 4301
