BIS Overview

The BIS program, or the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies program, allows students to combine two specific concentrations of their liking to make a more specific major. Throughout the four BIS core courses (301, 302, 401, 402) that are required, students learn to integrate their specific concentrations in order to fully utilize their major.

The concentrations I chose included International Business Studies and Economics. International Business was brought on because I have traveled all over the world while growing up and I love being in different countries and experiencing different cultures. I would love to continue traveling as part of my future job as well. I chose Economics as my other concentration because I feel that if I were to be working with businesses on an international level, I should have a strong knowledge of how our own economy works. From the BIS program I hope to gain several valuable skills that will allow me to succeed in my future profession.
