Bachelor of Arts or Science in University Studies (BUS)

University Studies is an interdisciplinary major that fosters new areas of learning and discovery by facilitating student learning across department and college boundaries. Administered by the Division of Undergraduate Education and Student Affairs within the Office of the Provost, a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in University Studies provides a unique course of study that allows students flexibility in choosing three distinct areas of study. Each area is referred to as a "concentration." Although the three concentrations exist as separate programs within the university, they are normally unavailable as a combination of courses in an existing degree program. For example, a student might focus on a specialization in environmental journalism with concentrations in journalism, plant and soil sciences, and environmental toxicology. Each area exists in different colleges as part of separate degree programs, but only a major in university studies will allow students to study the three concentrations as a unit.... [-]

Bachelor of General Studies, B.G.S.

The 120-hour Bachelor of General Studies is a challenging and rewarding option for students who wish a greater degree of flexibility in their course of study. As an interdisciplinary degree, it is not based on a specific major or minor. Instead, the student's curriculum will consist of courses from three areas of study which must be selected from established minors recognized in the Texas Tech Catalog. Two of the three areas of study must be administered by the College of Arts & Sciences.

A well-designed B.G.S. degree can help a student prepare to pursue a particular intellectual interest, a professional ambition, or graduate study. The three areas of study form a coherent specialization that is unavailable elsewhere in the university as an organized plan of study.... [-]
