About

At the University of Southern Mississippi, you can design an academic path that incorporates your interests and talents through the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS).

Overview

In the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies, you take charge of your own learning. You may select two concentrations from a large selection of academic minors or design your own approved concentrations from a variety of disciplines and courses offered by USM. Students can also choose from four currently offered concentrations, e.g. Environmental Studies.

What Will I Learn?

Through research, the University of Southern Mississippi aims to foster independence of mind, a spirit of exploration and discovery, and an awareness of our common responsibility to work collaboratively across disciplines towards solutions to complex problems.

Once you have established your concentrations, you will develop a research project that incorporates knowledge from your concentrations. Over a two-course research design process, you will design, implement, and present your research, while also honing writing and speaking skills. We encourage projects that involve applying knowledge in real-life settings.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Topics in Interdisciplinary Studies 
  • Integrative Research Methods and Design 
  • Integrative Capstone Experience
