Pace: Full-time or Part-Time
Concentrations: English, History, Business, Design, Philosophy, or design your own

Pursuing a B.A. in Integrative Studies allows you to merge coursework with your life and work experiences, exploring the benefits and challenges of living in a global society. This degree is meant to be broad, allowing you to customize your concentration to fit your career interests, while also providing a foundational liberal arts education. 

Flexibility is key here. You can enroll in courses online or in-person, take classes at night, and even switch between part-time and full-time enrollment as your schedule allows. In fact, you may find that you can transfer previous high education credits into the Integrative Studies program to fulfill our general education requirements, allowing you to complete your degree even faster. 


The Integrative Studies curriculum includes a set of common courses for all students enrolled, as well as courses in a concentration of your choosing.
