BIS vs. BA

The primary difference between a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) degree and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree is the core curriculum that must be completed for each.

Students completing the BIS degree follow a 45-credit core curriculum. This provides more flexibility and choices in selecting classes.

Students completing the BA degree follow the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 50-credit core curriculum, which includes foreign language courses and science courses with a lab.
