Bachelor of General Studies

The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree is an interdisciplinary degree program that will allow students to design their course of study by selecting two subject areas of choice. In addition to the standard Texas Core Curriculum, the BGS Program consists of required courses and two subject areas. Each subject area requires 12 upper division semester credit hours of the same course prefix. 

One subject area must be housed in the College of Education and Liberal Arts:

  • English
  • Criminal Justice
  • History
  • Instructional Technology
  • Leadership
  • Mass Communication
  • Psychology
  • Political Science
  • Sociology

No more than one subject from a Business discipline. Education, Special Education, and Bilingual Education may not be chosen as a subject area. The BGS Program may not be used for undergraduate Teacher Certification Students. 

BGS students can intern and work in a variety of career sectors from non-profit organizations to for profit organizations.
