Complete Degree at Stark

Bachelor of Integrative Studies at Kent State Stark

The Bachelor of Integrative Studies (BIS) is a non-major degree for juniors or seniors (those with at least 60 earned hours) that provides maximum freedom for students who wish to take a multidisciplinary, individualized approach to the design of an educational program while maintaining a focus on career or professional goals. This degree may have the most appeal for students near the end of their academic careers who are re-evaluating their academic and career choices.

The student is responsible for the research and design of the curriculum, subject to University requirements and approval by the College. Students choose a minimum of three academic departments in which to select courses and develop a rationale for the way in which these courses support their career goals.

There are two concentrations within the BIS degree: Integrative Studies-General, which allows students to choose a minimum of 30 credit hours from interrelated programs that support their career aspirations, and the Integrative Studies-Three Minors concentration which allows students to complete three university-recognized minors and/or certificates.

  • This degree can be completed in its entirety at Kent State Stark
