Bachelor of General Studies Program

​Northern's Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree is an option for you if you've earned a significant number of credits toward a degree, but wish to change your program of study.

 

 

Flexible

 

The BGS program is flexible - you might say it allows you to design your own degree. The program delivers the academic expertise required for a broad range of occupations, while allowing you to follow your passion.

 

The BGS allows you to tailor your program of study to fit a variety of interests.  

 

 

 

Convenient

 

The BGS is convenient for students who:

  • Are upperclassmen
  • Have taken time off from school
  • Are in the workforce and would like to enhance their professional opportunities with a degree
  • Wish to design a well-rounded, diverse, yet formal educational experience

 

 

 

Areas of Emphasis

 

With the BGS, you can focus on three of any of the following 15-credit areas of emphasis:
 

 

Allied Health

Business

Education

Fine Arts

Humanities

Social Science

Science, Engineering and Mathematics

Technology

Wellness

 

To pursue a BGS degree, you must have a 2.0 GPA.
