Individualized Studies, BIS
The Utah Tech Bachelor of Individualized Studies is a versatile degree program in which students customize and title their program of study in accordance with their post-graduate goals and in collaboration with supportive and enthusiastic faculty mentors. This degree program aims to serve students with the maturity and life experience to participate in the design of their own majors, especially under-served, nontraditional university populations such as returning older students who may have a variety of college credits and work experiences but who would not be as well served by a baccalaureate in any single, standard academic discipline.
