The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies program (B.I.S.) is a university-wide degree program that enables students to create interdisciplinary specialities that prepare them for careers in a world that increasingly bridges academic disciplines. Students pursue two subject-area concentrations that represent academic interests they wish to integrate into a meaningful program. A four-course core offers students the intellectual tools to identify connections between their concentrations and engage in interdisciplinary problem solving. Students who choose communication as one of their subject area concentrations must take 18 semester hours of courses as listed below. A minimun of 9 hours of ASU resident credit is required, including 6 hours of upper division courses offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. A "C" minimum grade is required in all classes in the communicaiton area of concentration.
