Bachelor of Integrative Studies

The Bachelor of Integrative Studies (BIS) degree offers students the opportunity to design their own degree. Students pick courses from different disciplines, perhaps Communication, Commerce, or Psychology, to prepare for a career or graduate school.

Integrative learning is a process by which students connect knowledge and skills from multiple sources and experiences, apply knowledge and skills in varied settings, analyze diverse points of view, and understand issues contextually. With a variety of unique concentrations, the Bachelor of Integrative Studies (BIS) degree meets the challenges of a 21st century education, while maintaining the Miami tradition of academic excellence.

What can I do with this major?

Students in Integrative Studies build a Bachelor's degree that works best for them, by making connections among fields of study that fit their educational, career, and personal goals. Unlike a general studies degree, the BIS incorporates a set of three seminars designed to help students reflect upon their educational options and purposefully design a degree that can work for them now and in the future.
