A student who receives a Bachelor in General Studies can sharpen his or her communication skills. Students can also develop organizational techniques and the ability to discuss a broad range of subjects, which can facilitate success in personal projects and relationships.

The cost of a bachelor's degree depends on the institution. Tuition rates and other fees vary based on location and program length. Students interested in pursuing this degree should have a look at different universities to find what they are looking for.

The great thing about a Bachelor in General Studies is the variety of jobs that await. Many graduates go on to find careers as sales assistants or managers, customer service representatives, retail store managers, administrative assistants, public relations account executives or project managers. Because of their diverse background, students are usually able to enter the workforce with a large skill set that is attractive to employers across a broad range of industries.

University Studies is an interdisciplinary major that fosters new areas of learning and discovery by facilitating student learning across department and college boundaries. Administered by the Division of Undergraduate Education and Student Affairs within the Office of the Provost, a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in University Studies provides a unique course of study that allows students flexibility in choosing three distinct areas of study. Each area is referred to as a "concentration." Although the three concentrations exist as separate programs within the university, they are normally unavailable as a combination of courses in an existing degree program. For example, a student might focus on a specialization in environmental journalism with concentrations in journalism, plant and soil sciences, and environmental toxicology. Each area exists in different colleges as part of separate degree programs, but only a major in university studies will allow students to study the three concentrations as a unit.... [-]

As the world changes, societal standards and ideals transform along the way. Distinctions between disciplines no longer apply in a world where everything overlaps, where everything is connected. Creativity and innovative thinking become important factors that range from entrepreneurial initiatives to scientific research. This is where iArts comes in; in an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary world, you learn to be critically-engaged thinkers, artistic analysts and creative entrepreneurs through the different disciplines and forms you are exposed to. Developing concepts that are triggered directly by real-life issues, you create artistic interventions within project-based structures. iArts stands for Interdisciplinary Arts, an intensive international three-year Bachelor’s programme for the creative and intelligent multitalented. It builds bridges between the arts, sciences, society, and entrepreneurship. The programme is an exciting cross-over of artistic skills, academic reflection, research, and entrepreneurship. They are connected in projects and seminars with a strong focus on today’s societal issues. This makes iArts the first bachelor’s programme in the Netherlands to link interdisciplinarity in the arts to academic scholarship and partners outside of the academy.... [-]

About

Philosophy or physics? Medicine or mathematics? Law or a language? One of the distinguishing features of the program at UCR is that you do not have to choose. The Liberal Arts and Sciences concept is based upon the idea that today’s most complex problems can no longer be solved with a mono-disciplinary approach. Students at University College Roosevelt construct their own academic program, tailor-made to their individual interests. In doing so, the program prepares you for a world whose demands and challenges will grow more complex each year, while optimally preparing you for the master’s program or the job of your choice.

Not for every student

The University College Roosevelt concept may not fit every student: the continuous assessment system, its study pace, and its high standards demand a lot from students, who are encouraged to perform to the best of their ability and, in turn, motivate each other to the fullest. Our success rates clearly show that this strategy works. Nearly 90% of our graduates complete their bachelor´s program within the allotted three years, and many of them have been accepted to the best graduate programs available. This does not mean, however, that U.C.R. students are simply brilliant scholars. Students ultimately decide to study at U.C.R. because of their boundless curiosity, their motivation, and their international outlook.... [-]

Bachelor of General Studies, B.G.S.

The 120-hour Bachelor of General Studies is a challenging and rewarding option for students who wish a greater degree of flexibility in their course of study. As an interdisciplinary degree, it is not based on a specific major or minor. Instead, the student's curriculum will consist of courses from three areas of study which must be selected from established minors recognized in the Texas Tech Catalog. Two of the three areas of study must be administered by the College of Arts & Sciences.

A well-designed B.G.S. degree can help a student prepare to pursue a particular intellectual interest, a professional ambition, or graduate study. The three areas of study form a coherent specialization that is unavailable elsewhere in the university as an organized plan of study.... [-]

Liberal Studies provides the possibility for a program of study to meet educational goals not exactly satisfied by other academic programs. There are possibilities of three or more minors which may be developed into a coherent program of study. Students prepare a statement in which they list their educational objectives and explain how a particular combination of minors will help them to achieve them. A degree plan is developed and the complete proposal is signed by the faculty advisor who will oversee the program. The form needed to begin this process may be obtained from the Provost Office. It is returned, by the student, to the Provost for final approval before being delivered to the Office of the Registrar. A 2.0 GPA is required in each minor for graduation.... [-]
