elcome to Integrated Studies at UVU. Our program offers a four-year interdisciplinary
Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts course of study that enables you to combine
two different disciplines into a single degree. It's not a double major, nor is it
a major / minor combination. It is a way of integrating different areas of knowledge
into a solid interdisciplinary degree.
Departments across UVU have designed 40 areas of emphasis
that can be combined with the Integrated Studies core curriculum to create a wide
variety of educational possibilities for you. Each emphasis area comes as a set of
required and elective courses, approved by the departments that created them. So,
this isn't a "cobbled-together" degree; it's a degree that requires careful planning
and coordination between you and your academic advisors from each emphasis area.
One principle behind our program is that the complex problems of today require thinking
that is informed by the study of multiple disciplines. As an Integrated Studies student,
you will demonstrate your ability to think across disciplines as you complete your
, a thesis or project that uses the tools and knowledge of your two emphasis areas
to answer the questions you are posing. Capstone Projects are generally completed
over two semesters, while you work closely with expert faculty who specialize in each
of your emphasis areas.
