Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies

Designed for non-traditional students who desire the flexibility that only a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) can provide, this four-year degree program allows you the freedom to create a personal academic plan, around a chosen area of emphasis, that matches your professional and personal goals. Working with an academic advisor, each student develops a unique degree plan that both fulfills WKU degree requirements and supports professional and personal life goals.

With 12 areas of emphasis available, the BIS gives you a unique opportunity to choose an area most applicable to your life. Four areas of emphasis offer 100% online pathways for completion, giving you even more flexibility!  Others have significant portions available online, and may suit students with previous hours earned and those who can attend classes at one of WKU's four campus locations.
