Bachelor of Science in Integrated Studies

The program in Integrated Studies offers students two flexible advisory paths towards degree completion. Students may combine two minors with other required coursework, or combine credits from four different disciplines, in order to craft a specialized degree reflecting their areas of interest.  While Becker has an excellent program in Liberal Arts, this new program in Integrated Studies will differ by including additional courses in the Sciences, Math/Business/Design, and Social/Behavioral Sciences, as well as by culminating in a Bachelor of Science degree.

Students work on a capstone project, which will serve as the culmination of their individualized integrated studies. Students will research and write about a topic which illustrates the relationships of meaning, interaction, and interpretation within their emphasis or multiple areas of study.
