What’s New at IU Southeast?
Our Bachelor of General Studies (B.G.S.) degree is now offered online.
What does it look like?
The online B.G.S. has the same structure and requirements as the face-to-face B.G.S. degree, but students take online courses delivered by IU Southeast, IU East, IU Kokomo and IU Northwest. Working closely with their advisor, students build a program that includes required courses, an area of concentration, upper level courses, capstone and electives. They may also add a certificate in recreation.
Who should check it out?
The program is designed for nontraditional or adult students who have earned 26 hours or more credit and want the flexibility of testing out of courses through DSST exams. Like other degrees, a minor or certificate can also be added.
What can you do with a General Studies degree?
Plenty! General Studies graduates work in a variety of fields, including business/entrepreneurship, sales, health/human services, manufacturing/supervision/safety, education and information technology (IT) and many others.
