Distance Education - Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies

How do You Design Your Own Major?

BID majors consult with their advisor and decide on a field (or fields) of study to pursue. We call these interest areas, "cognate areas." You may choose the interest areas you wish. These areas do not have to be from the same department. You may choose one area of study rather than two in all fields except Business. Like traditional majors, you will still need to take a series of classes from their chosen area, including prerequisites.

Some examples of interest areas chosen by BID distance studetns include:

Political Science and Management

English and History

Information Technology and Marketing

Geology and Anthropology

Social Sciences (Geology, Political Science, Philosophy and History)

History and Communication

Information Resources and Information Systems
