Bachelors in Multidisciplinary Studies
The Bachelor of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies (BSMS) at Liberty University (LU) is a unique degree that allows students to complete a broad range of courses and can build on past college credit and/or courses. Graduates of the bachelor's program discover a variety of career options.
Liberty University has designed the multidisciplinary degree for the adult learner with college credit in varying disciplines. The program enables students to combine their previous academic and work experiences in two or three distinct cognates, allowing for faster degree completion than a traditional major requiring many additional hours in one specific field. Courses focus on developing strong skills in writing, speaking and reading, as well as analytical reasoning, computer literacy and library research. In correlation to previously earned credit, students may create a customized 120 credit-hour degree plan by selecting cognates of interest.
Typically, individuals with BSMS degrees find employment in careers such as law, education, human resources, medicine, social services, gerontology, sales, marketing technology, retail and management.
Learning online is an effective way to earn a bachelor's degree without sacrificing personal responsibilities. Liberty University's online programs give students the flexibility to complete course work from anywhere and at any time.
