The unique nature of the program requires students to work closely with an advisor to develop a cohesive and individualized degree plan. Students are required to meet with the BAIS advisor each semester in order to gauge progress. Advising provides students with opportunities for guidance, support and accountability.
The program requires 60 hours in addition to the core curriculum requirements. The major includes 18 hours of study in three separate disciplines (54 hours total), as well as LIST 3310 Reasoning Across the Disciplines and LIST 4310 Liberal Arts Colloquium.
Two of the three disciplines chosen as concentrations must be within the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
