Overview

The Integrated Studies program at Dixie State University provides opportunities for students to earn a bachelor’s degree different from traditional, discipline-specific programs. Students select two emphasis areas from the following: Art (2 tracks available), American Sign Language, Biology, Chemistry, Communications (3 tracks available), Criminal Justice, Dance, Digital Design, Earth Science, English (2 tracks available), History, Humanities, Information Technology, Management, Management & Operations, Marketing, Mathematics, Military Science, Music, Psychology, Recreation Management, Sociology, Software Development, Spanish, Theater, and Web Design & Development.

Students have the flexibility of developing a major program of study that will uniquely suit their personal and professional goals. It presents the advantages of a liberal arts degree while allowing students to combine basic knowledge and explore relationships between two academic or professional fields. This approach enables students not only to assume greater responsibility and ownership of their major areas of study but also to gain knowledge and skills tailored to a specific career or professional pursuit by expanding their training beyond a traditional, discipline-specific curriculum.
