The General Studies Program offers the one of the most flexible degrees at IU Southeast, the Bachelor of Science of General Studies (or BGS). You can complete it wholly on line, as an online/evening (on campus) combination, or entirely face to face. It is an ideal way to balance family and work life with your goal to finish college.

For example, many of your 30 hours in General Education may double-count with the core area courses and concentration in the BGS major. Left with 36-66 elective hours, you will have room to add even more value to your degree by building in one or more minors, aimed at career goals.

Also helpful to those wanting a quick and cost-savings path to completion, the BGS allows you to earn course credit by the subject exams of CLEP and DSST. Moreover, it is the only program offering credit for prior learning. We guide you to prepare a portfolio showing your parallel competencies with specific courses (up to 30 hrs) for which you may seek a for-credit review.

BGS alums enjoy flexible career options as entrepreneurs, managers, consultants, executives, coordinators, directors, administrators, or specialists. They are able to apply their acquired skills in sectors such as business, sales, real estate, accounting, retail, manufacturing, safety, supervision, education, information technology, or health and human services, and more. Many have become proven leaders and innovative contributors in their fields.

Our grads succeed by having learned to communicate well, think critically and creatively, and solve problems with sound decisions. They are confident, versatile, tolerant workers. Moreover, as individuals, they possess the motivation and resilience to actualize their dreams for life and work, for which attaining their bachelor’s degree will open many doors.
