Core Courses in the Major

The Integrative Studies curriculum is self-designed by students seeking maximum flexibility in earning their baccalaureate degree on the path to, or advancement within, their desired career.  Students must successfully complete the required two Core courses in the major and overall degree requirements.

In an effort to ensure that students demonstrate a sufficient understanding of the course material and learning objectives of this academic program, only grades of “C” (2.0) or higher may be used to satisfy Core requirements.

Program Structure:

Core (6 credit hours) – LDR 3115 Contemporary Issues in Leadership (may be taken after completion of ENC 1102) and IDS 4939 Senior Seminar – General Studies Capstone (may only be taken in graduating semester)

This degree may be completed as a campus-based program or through UCF Online.

Research is strongly encouraged as a vehicle for discovery and application of classroom knowledge to the lab and field.  Learn more through the Office of Undergraduate Research

Students in the Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree program with an Integrative Studies major are encouraged to engage in undergraduate research, internships, and service-learning opportunities that provide them with hands-on experience in their chosen field of study. These opportunities are often with future employers and community organizations that encourage student involvement and often serve to connect graduates with their first job out of college.

Students who earn this degree should carefully incorporate a mix of academic and experiential preparation to effectively transition into their desired career upon graduation. In addition, students may also pursue an advanced degree in related areas.
